Port of Palacios Accident Lawyers
Serving Workers Injured at Port of Palacios
The Port of Palacios is integral to the fishing industry. Matagorda County Navigation District No. 1, where the port is located, is a specialized district that was formed in 1940 to promote the industry of fishing and to maintain the environment of the navigable waterway. This port is located in Palacios, Texas. Maritime workers in this region are primarily commercial fishermen or work on shrimping boats. Fish and shrimp drive the economy in this region.
The Port of Palacios is primarily a fishing port rather than a port used for importing and exporting, although some fish products are packaged and exported by truck from this area. Commercial fishermen have an incredibly tough job—in fact, it is ranked as one of the most dangerous occupations in the entire United States. Whether you work on a commercial fishing vessel as a deckhand, an engineer, or even a chef, if you are injured on the job, we're here to help.
