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.
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.

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.

Because maritime law is so complex and so complicated, it is crucial that you work with an attorney who has an in-depth understanding of how it works and who has proven themselves in similar cases before.
