Baton Rouge & New Orleans Jones Act Law Claim Attorney

New Orleans Boating Accident Lawyer

Louisiana Boating Accident Lawyer • Barge Loading and Dock Injury Attorney

A personal injury in a crane accident, a tug accident or an offshore accident, while working for a river transport business is not just about pain and recovery. Often it is about losing the ability to continue earning a living at your job. At its worst, it means losing your ability to earn a livelihood for yourself or your family.

Unfortunately, compensation from the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) pays only for recovery costs and may not be enough. If you've been injured in a river transport barge accident, or suffered a dock injury, you need to put an experienced Louisiana boating accident lawyer on your side of the courtroom to get the compensation you need.
