As Oregon is a coastal state, the maritime industry plays an important role in its economic development. There are several key ports in Oregon, and our maritime injury lawyers can assist dock workers, harbor workers, and longshoremen who have been injured at any of these ports. We also help seamen who work on vessels that travel to and from these ports. We have included some basic information about the major seaports in the region:

  • Port of Portland, Oregon is located on the banks of the Willamette River as it flows into the Columbia River, approximately 100 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Portland is the county seat of Multnomah County and is the largest city in Oregon. The port is responsible for exporting more wheat than any other U.S. port and is the fourth largest export port on the West Coast based on tonnage exported. Imports and exports handled by the Port of Portland total approximately $14 billion each year and include such products as: wheat, hay, potash, soda hash, automobiles, limestone, and steel. The port authority is the nine-member Port of Portland Commission.
  • Oregon International Port of Coos Bay is located in southwestern Oregon and is the biggest harbor between San Francisco in California and Puget Sound in Washington. It is the second largest center for maritime commerce in Oregon. This port is connected to the Pacific Ocean by a channel that is 15 miles long and 37 feet deep. As a deep-water port, the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay seeks to enhance the economy and quality of life for residents throughout the region. The port authority is the Coos Bay Board of Commissioners.
  • Port of Astoria, Oregon is located near the coast of northern Oregon in Clatsop County, across the bay from Washington. Building began on this port back in 1914, four years after voters in the county approved its formation. The port authority is the Port of Astoria Commissioners, which is responsible for managing and operating the port.

In addition to helping dock workers and seamen working on the vessels that visit these ports, our maritime injury lawyers assist clients in cases involving the other ports in Oregon, including: Port of Arlington, Port of Brookings Harbor, Gold Beach Harbor, Port of Morrow, Port of Newport, Port of St. Helens, Port of The Dalles, and Port of Umatilla.
