Were You Injured In An Offshore or Maritime Accident in Beaumont?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Beaumont maritime accident lawyers have dedicated our practice to producing real results for real people whose lives have been impacted by negligence in ports and waterways throughout Texas.
According to the Comptroller, the Port of Beaumont includes 6,800 linear feet of harbor front with nine deep water berths and access to three class-1 railroads, including BNSF, Union Pacific, and Kansas City Southern. With 550,000 square feet of covered storage, 90 acres of open storage, and a newly constructed 250-acre crude-by-rail terminal equipped to service ships and barges, the net benefit of trade associated with the Beaumont port of entry contributes an estimated 31,000 jobs and a minimum of $4.4 billion in gross domestic product to the state’s economy.
While most employees who work on docks and piers, and offshore on oil rigs, refinery stations, and other important maritime positions make a good living, they are also employed in some of the most dangerous industries in the state.
Our Jefferson County personal injury attorneys know maritime jobs are essential to the state’s economic stability, including the livelihoods of our residents. Since 2003, we have helped protect their rights after injuries have disrupted their abilities to work, and make a living.
Our maritime and offshore attorneys are well-versed in all laws that protect workers in case of an injury or the loss of their loved ones, including the Jones Act, which protects eligible American workers who are injured at sea.
Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.
