Barges, docks and tow or tug boats are dangerous places to work, and if proper safety precautions are ignored they can be deadly as well. The dangers of working on vessels are so great that the Jones Act, a federal law, was enacted to protect the rights of maritime workers injured on the job.

Barge and Riverboat Injuries

Millions of pounds being pushed or pulled on water by barges or tow boats can lead to slips and falls overboard, drowning, workers being crushed between vessels or docks, and ropes or lines snapping and severely injuring workers.

Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are a part of the maritime industry. Severe injuries suffered by maritime workers may include:

  • Death
  • Disfigurement
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Broken Bones
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
