Accidents in the Port of Bridgeport
Trust Your Case to Our Experienced Maritime Lawyers
Port of Bridgeport, Alabama is a small river port on the Tennessee River in the City of Bridgeport, a city with a rich maritime heritage. The community grew around Bridgeport with the river and rail traffic from the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad, giving rise to retail establishments that were built along the river and around the railroad depot.

After a maritime worker is injured, it’s essential for them to recover financial compensation, especially in cases of catastrophic injury such as severe burns, amputations, and spinal cord injuries. This means medical bills can be exorbitant, while the injured worker may have lost a great deal of income while he or she was unable to work. With legislation like the Jones Act and general maritime law, injured seamen can file claims to seek maintenance and cure benefits or perhaps other types of financial compensation for any type of accident. Our skilled maritime lawyers in Alabama can determine the best way to approach your case.
