Port of Victoria Maritime Lawyers
$20+ Billion Won for Our Clients
The Port of Victoria lies on the mid-coast region of Texas and is one of the go-to ports for Texas businesses in need of transportation. Its waterways lead directly to the Gulf of Mexico, which means easy access to a variety of other U.S. ports.
The Port of Victoria is also close to other major modes of transportation, such as railways, highways, and even airport facilities, making it a prime location for shipping goods. It offers close access to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, and it is also close to the deep-water Port Lavaca in Point Comfort. The taxes are low, so the prices for those businesses that choose to transport their goods are low. There are also 2,000 acres of industrial park, some of which is still available for development. Between low taxes and abundant available space, the Port of Victoria has strong potential for expansion.
When safety isn't put first, people who work in the industrial park as well as those maritime workers who find themselves passing through the Port of Victoria may be seriously injured. Arnold & Itkin is prepared to assist injured longshoremen, offshore workers, harbor workers, and seamen in Texas and nationwide. From deck accidents or incidents involving heavy machinery, to falls overboard or gangway accidents, our experienced Texas maritime attorneys have the resources and knowledge to handle your Jones Act or other maritime law case.
About Victoria, Texas
Victoria, Texas is the location of Port of Victoria. It is the county seat of Victoria County and has a population of about 60,000. The city is located just 30 miles away from the Gulf of Mexico, making this a prime location for a port. Many of those who reside in Victoria have found their occupation at the port. While the Port of Victoria itself only employs a handful of managing staff, many maritime and harbor workers occupy the premises on a daily basis.
Part of the draw for a port in this area is its proximity to other major Texas cities such as Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. The city was originally founded as a French colony, but switched hands to the Spanish and then to Mexico in 1824. In 1840, it switched ownership a final time and was incorporated into Texas.
