Maritime Injuries Can Occur On The Shore Too

Most people think of accidents at sea when they hear the term "maritime injury." However, many shipping-related accidental injuries occur on dry land. As ships arrive and leave, workers who are not at sea are often injured. Shore-based military injury cases often arise from situations such as:

  • Loading of ships
  • Unloading of ships
  • Docking
  • Launching
  • Warehouse activity

Who Will Compensate The Injury Victim?

In order to get a clear answer to that question, our law firm is ready to initiate a detailed investigation. We may discover that a docking crew was responsible for an accident that resulted in injuries. Whoever was responsible, we are prepared to pursue compensation for you through the Jones Act or through a lawsuit versus a port authority.

Our Louisiana trial lawyers at The Townsley Law Firm have achieved noteworthy verdicts and settlements for clients who have been seriously injured or lost loved ones in fatal accidents. We take on insurance companies, major corporations, loading dock management companies and other entities that have the ability to give our clients the compensation they deserve. We are prepared to go to trial to make sure our clients' needs and losses are fully covered after a shore-based maritime injury.
