The Port of Greenville

Maritime Attorney Serving Your Port

Port of Greenville is located in Greenville, Mississippi. It is one of Mississippi's main trading ports. Some of its most common cargoes are rice, corn, wheat, and fertilizer. The cargo of a port tends to reflect the commodities in the immediate area, so agricultural cargo likely indicates a great deal of agricultural industry in the area. Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent those who work at Port of Greenville and have become injured while performing their job duties.

Port Services and Locale

As is customary for ports, this one is in close proximity to major U.S. and state highways. The port is only three miles away from a major U.S. highway and even has its own rail service. The main channel depth is eight feet, which means the port primarily services barges. The largest vessel the port can accommodate is a miniship-coastal trader.

There are various different services at the port as well, such as mooring, towing, and cargo handling. It is a dangerous job to load and unload those vessels, which is why so many maritime and harbor workers become injured while performing their duties. Though maritime industry is crucial, it is also potentially injurious.

The nature of the job is inherently dangerous, but it is made even more dangerous when there is negligence present. When a careless action is taken and someone is injured as a result, the victim deserves their due compensation. That is why our firm exists—to help injured workers get the finances they need to move forward.

Greenville, Mississippi

Located in Washington County, Mississippi, Greenville has a population of 34,000 people. There were actually two other cities under the same name, but the first died shortly after the American Revolution and the second remains the parent city. The town is rich in Revolutionary War history—in fact, it was named after the war hero Nathanael Greene. The city sits on the east bank of Lake Ferguson.

If you are a resident of Greenville or near Greenville, you may likely be employed in the maritime industry as a harbor worker or a crewmember. Our firm is dedicated to these very people, which is why we would like to speak to you in the event that you were injured. Your status as a maritime worker means that you have special protections under the law that you may not be aware of.

Arnold & Itkin is committed to maritime workers. We are passionate about fighting for their rights if they became the victim of negligence. Negligence is the principle that must be present in a case for it to qualify as personal injury.
