Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania’s countryside, filled with flowing rivers and beautiful lakes, has provided an ideal environment for the growth of the Commonwealth’s maritime industry. The Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Delaware, Mississippi, and Ohio rivers flow through this historic state and provide a resourceful means of transporting goods throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. With major cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Eire boasting some of the nation’s largest and busiest ports, it’s obvious why the Commonwealth has become a center for international commerce. Philadelphia, for example, is known as the “Great Port City,” and has become a key entry point along the Delaware River for forest and cocoa products. While Port Erie, the Commonwealths only port along the Great Lakes, has become a hub for the industrial industry in the U.S. and Canada. The Port of Pittsburgh, on the other hand, is the nation’s 2nd largest inland port and is responsible for creating over 45,000 maritime related jobs.
Offshore Injuries in Pennsylvania
Along with the continuing success of Pennsylvania’s various ports, there has been an unfortunate rise in the number of offshore workers who have been injured or killed on the job. These offshore injuries are due in large part to the negligent behavior of maritime employers who continue to ignore their responsibility to provide crew members a reasonably safe working environment.
If you or a loved one were seriously injured in an offshore accident, contact the Jones Act lawyers at Zehl & Associates today to learn how to enforce your rights. Our team of experienced offshore injury attorneys will devote the time, energy and resources necessary to earn you maximum compensation.
