Mississippi is home to more than 15 ports along the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi River, and the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Thousands of Mississippians and Gulf Coast residents earn a living on ships, harbors, in shipyards, and on oil platforms.

Most maritime related jobs pay well, however earning a living on or near the ocean is a dangerous business. Working under such conditions demands competence, professionalism, a well trained staff, and properly maintained equipment and machinery. Anything less places lives at risk.

Types of accidents include: oil rig accidents, barge accidents, tugboat accidents, faulty or defective equipment accidents, collision accidents, dredging accidents, commercial fishing accidents, crane accidents, shipyard accidents, cruise ship accidents, or any other maritime related accidents.


Fighting for the Fair Compensation that You Deserve

Maritime accidents are governed under a distinct set of laws, and not just any attorney can handle Jones Act and maritime cases. An experienced maritime lawyer can attempt to get the results, the settlement and the financial compensation you deserve for your long term care.
