Texas Barge Accident Lawyers
Working on a barge or tug and pilot vessels used for moving barges into place is among the most dangerous occupations at sea. Heavy, taut lines required for making up or unfacing a barge often give way suddenly under pressure. Equipment and wet lines are often too heavy for the few deckhands assigned to the task, causing serious lifting injuries. The very nature of making up two or more heavy vessels in an unpredictable sea or river environment creates unfortunate opportunities for crush injuries and falls from sudden acceleration or collisions.
