Louisiana Dredge Accidents Lawyers
Dredges can be found up and down the rivers, bayous and ports of Louisiana and the entire gulf coast. These vessels are essential to keep some rivers such as the Mississippi and Red River in control, and to keep the channel deep enough for shipping commerce.
Often these dredges work 24 hours a day and usually have smaller support vessels under their direction to help transport men to and from shore and to help discharge pipe connections.
Dredge Accidents Can Cause Serious Injury
Many injuries occur during the use of small push boats that are essential to the dredge’s operation. The crewmen of such dredges are usually Jones Act seamen receiving the special protection of seamen.
We’ve handled many maritime cases involving dredges and multiple aspects of dredging operations.
