Cameron Parish Port Injury Claims
$15+ Billion Secured in Verdicts & Settlements
Arnold & Itkin advocates for people who have been injured while working at West Cameron Port in Cameron, Louisiana, which is the port entry for getting into the Calcasieu Ship Channel. Within its territorial limits are this port, East Fork, and Cameron Loop. The port itself was established in 1968 as its own political subdivision, which means the governing members of the port have authority over all areas within its jurisdiction—including police protection if necessary.
Cameron Parish Port is well known in the Louisiana oil and gas industry as a major contributor to both the petroleum industry and the seafood industry. That’s why you’d find many shrimp boats and commercial fishing vessels here.
In addition to petroleum and seafood, there are other types of vital cargo that pass through this port, such as grain and rice. This port was made for industrial ships, which is why it has a main channel depth of about 60 feet. Like many other ports, certain industries are stationed here, such as Cameron Fisheries Seafood Processing and Cameron LNG.
