The Port of Caddo-Bossier is essential to both state and national economies. Located at the head of the Red River Waterway in Northwest Louisiana, just a few miles south of Shreveport, the Port of Caddo-Bossier links businesses throughout the “Ark-La-Tex” region via the Mississippi River. The port not only has access to America’s heartland via water, but it also sits in close proximity to many U.S. highways and railways, making transportation and shipping simpler.

What to Do If You Are Injured at Port of Caddo-Bossier
As a maritime worker, if you are hurt in or near the Port of Caddo-Bossier, you are entitled to specific legal protections, especially if you qualify as a Jones Act seaman. There are provisions set up for Jones Act workers to recover benefits if they’ve been hurt on the job. These provisions may be more readily available than in other types of personal injury cases, as there is a lower burden of proof (for establishing that your employer was negligent).
