The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, “Workers at marine terminals have a higher fatality, injury, and illness rate than other workers in the U.S.” Maritime jobs are common in Louisiana, as the state borders the Gulf of Mexico.
While maritime jobs play an important role in our economy, they also present many dangers to those who work in the industry. If you or a loved one sustained injuries while working at sea, you have legal rights.
