Gulf Coast Shipping Accident Lawyers
The shipping industry is a key and important part of our economic life here in Southeast Texas. Here, and also along the entire Gulf Coast, thousands and thousands of workers are engaged transporting cargo, manning vessels at sea, keeping boats and ships in seaworthy condition and in transporting and loading cargo. When workers in the shipping industry are killed or injured on the job, different, and often complex, maritime, marine and admiralty laws may well govern the victims' rights to recover lost income, loss of earning capacity, medical costs, and other types of damages.Legal Actions Available for Marine Industry Accident Victims – On Shore and Sea
