Georgia’s ports are at the center of the Peach State’s commercial activity. According to the Georgia Port Authority (GPA), port-related operations provide more than 440,000 jobs statewide and generate more than $100 billion in revenue annually. This includes revenue from cargo, fishing, shrimping, and other commercial operations, as well as revenue from cruise lines and passengers departing from and visiting the Port of Savannah as a port of call.
The GPA operates five major ports on Georgia’s coastal and inland waterways. These ports serve numerous cruise lines and cargo lines, as well as many smaller maritime operations. Georgia’s five major ports are located in the following areas:
Unfortunately, while cruise ships, cargo ships, and other vessels play an important role in Georgia’s economy, they present many health and safety risks as well. As a result, accidents are common. At Brais Law Firm, we represent individuals and families who have been affected by maritime accidents on Georgia’s coastal and inland waterways, at GPA ports, and in the Atlantic Ocean.
Cruise passengers who live in and visit Georgia have clear rights under U.S. maritime law. We help individuals and families pursue claims for all types of cruise ship accidents and injuries. Crewmembers onboard cruise ships, cargo ships, and other vessels have clear legal rights as well, and we handle maritime injury claims under the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), and other applicable laws.
If you have been injured in a cruise ship accident or other maritime accident in Georgia—or if you are a Georgia resident who has been injured in an accident offshore—Brais Law Firm can help you assert your legal rights.
