Tugboat, Barge and Vessel Accidents Dodson Hooks & Frederick APLC.

Tugboat, Barge and Vessel Accidents

Tugboats are designed by their manufacturers in order to maximize horsepower and fuel capacity. Working on a tugboat or other vessel is dangerous and many workers are injured from tripping, falling, line handling and other hazards. State and federal maritime laws protect those who have been injured on tugboats, barges and other vessels that qualify.

At the law firm of Dodson & Hooks, APLC, our attorneys have successfully handled many claims for clients who have been injured on barges and tugboats at sea or on inland waterways. We have recovered significant compensation for our clients under the Jones Act and other statutes, including the Longshore and Harbor Workers Act. If you have been injured in a tugboat or barge accident, talk with a lawyer about your rights.

Louisiana Barge Worker Injury Attorneys

Our lawyers have extensive experience and have handled many different types of tugboat and vessel accidents cases, including those involving:

  • Falling- from ladders or overboard
  • Slippery decks
  • Crew negligence
  • Tow winch or equipment failure
  • Undermanned vessels
  • Heavy line and shackle accidents
  • Tow lines parting

Since barges are designed for sea worthiness, and manufacturers tend to overlook crew safety, there is a danger for workers. Our lawyers can help to recover full financial compensation after an accident has occurred.
