Port Manchac Accident Attorneys
Experienced Maritime Attorneys Serving Offshore Workers
Located in the Southeastern region of the state of Louisiana on Lake Pontchartrain, Port Manchac was established in 1962, transforming the region into a machine for the economy and new industries. The distribution center at this port handles products from the surrounding forest and oilfields, plus steel, liquids, and construction materials. Port Manchac is built to handle bulk and container cargo transported by barge, railway, and truck.
Many offshore workers pass through and utilize this port as well, and with those numbers set to rise, there is a great need for skilled Louisiana maritime lawyers to represent these workers if they are injured. Maritime work has risks, and all too often, employers don’t take enough steps to protect their workers from the hazards they face. If you or a loved one was injured while working in or near Port Manchac, Arnold & Itkin may be able to help you get compensated.
