Ohio Maritime Injury Lawyer

Representing Ohio Seaman, Harbor Workers & Longshoremen

If you are weighing your options in the wake of an offshore injury, accident, or illness of any kind, it may be time to consult an Ohio Jones Act attorney. Whether you are a seaman, harbor worker, or longshoreman, you have particular rights as outlined in the Jones Act and various other maritime laws. An attorney can talk to you about what occurred and can advise you of your rights and options at this point. When you are facing the difficulty of dealing with medical expenses and lost earnings, recovering full benefits under maritime law may make all the difference in your ability to make ends meet.

A maritime injury lawyer at our firm may be able to assist you with virtually any type of offshore injury claim or lawsuit, including those that occur at the ports in Ohio or while on the waters of Lake Erie. We are familiar with the various ports in the state, including the Port of Lorain, Port of Sandusky, Port of Toledo, Port of Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Port of Huron, Port of Conneaut, Port of Ashtabula, and the inland Port of Cincinnati. We have included some helpful information about the main ports in Ohio:

  • Port of Lorain, Ohio is located at the mouth of the Black River, on the southern shores of Lake Erie. The Port of Lorain is an important Midwest shipping center for such products as limestone, coal, and iron ore. The port handled nearly 3 million tons of cargo in 2007 and continues to promote waterborne commerce and economic development in the area. The Lorain Port Authority owns and operates the Port of Lorain.
  • Port of Sandusky, Ohio is owned and operated by the Sandusky Dock Corporation. It is located at near the mouth of Sandusky Bay off Lake Erie in northern Ohio.
  • Port of Toledo, Ohio, located at the mouth of the Maumee River at the southwestern tip of Lake Erie, at Maumee Bay. It is a primary Great Lakes seaport and has served a leading role in supporting the city of Toledo and the surrounding metropolitan area. The Port of Toledo is owned and operated by the first port authority to be established in Ohio, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. The Port of Toledo is the largest seaport by area of all the ports on the Great Lakes shores. It is equipped to handle all types of cargo: bulk, breakbulk, containers, and project cargo.
