Port of Brownsville Accident Attorneys

Defending the Rights of Seamen & Harbor Workers

Arnold & Itkin is a Texas maritime law firm serving those who have been injured while performing their job duties in a maritime work environment. Since we serve hundreds of clients in Texas, we understand that many offshore workers find their employment at companies that deal frequently with the Port of Brownsville. This particular port is a deep-water port linked to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, only eight miles away from the Mexican border. The Port of Brownsville is vital for transporting cargo to and from Mexico. It was founded in 1936 and now has more than 230 companies operating there, with a myriad of industrial operations occurring simultaneously at any given time.

This is a large facility that not only hosts large ships but also has facilities made for the construction and repair of ships. Many drilling rigs are actually manufactured here as well as other vessels. There is space for bulk storage (since many of the vessels here are cargo ships) as well as a waste oil recovery operation. With all of this industry, the port says it still has room to grow. It is welcome to any business that will cater to the growth of industry at the Port of Brownsville. This port is also considered a foreign trade zone because of its proximity to the Mexican border. This is a place where merchandise, both foreign and domestic, can go through the customs process.

About Brownsville, Texas

This is the town that the port is actually located in, and it lies right on the bank of the Rio Grande. The town is large, with a 175,000+ population. It is even larger when considered with its greater statistical area, which is the 4th largest on the US-Mexico border. Historically, Brownsville has served as the location for many Texan wars and battles, such as the Mexican-American War and the American Civil War. What is interesting about this town is that it is not only the southernmost town in all of Texas, it is one of the southernmost towns in the entire United States. 

Without the Port of Brownsville to support it, the city's economy would not be what it is today. The port serves as a vital link for commerce between the United States and Mexico.

Arnold & Itkin is proud to serve those maritime workers who have become injured while working at the Port of Brownsville. In any industrial setting, workers face dangers caused by lax safety standards and employer negligence. The dangerous nature of the workplace begs the need for a skilled maritime attorney who is willing to fight for their rights. 

Maritime work is challenging, but this is not an excuse for accidents. Most offshore injuries can be avoided if proper safety precautions are taken. Often, these safety precautions are the responsibility of someone other than the person who was injured, which may give the injured worker grounds for a case against the responsible party (or parties). If you were wrongfully injured, our Port of Brownsville maritime lawyers have the resources to protect your rights.
