Legal Assistance for Open Water Injuries in Houma & New Orleans, LA

Inland Waterways / Rivers

Our New Orleans maritime injury attorneys represent people nationwide who are injured while working on barges, push boats, dredges, fishing boats, and other commercial vessels on the Mississippi River and other navigable rivers, canals, and streams in the Gulf Coast area and across the country. Many inland waterways workers are protected under the federal Jones Act. The law for these kinds of injuries is specialized and requires a maritime lawyer with personal injury experience. River workers face numerous hazards. Career-ending injuries can result from running or walking into obstacles; slipping and falling; collisions with other vessels; improperly used or defective equipment, such as winches or cranes; and reckless or negligent behavior by coworkers and employers. We represent workers injured on any inland waterway, including the following:
  • Mississippi River
  • Ohio River
  • Missouri River
  • Arkansas River
  • Red River
  • Illinois River
