Accidents in Louisiana Ports & Locations

With dozens of ports, harbors, and marinas, Louisiana’s Gulf Coast is a hub of maritime activity. New Orleans is a popular cruise destination as well, and several cruise ships call the Port of New Orleans home.

From its unique and rich cultural history to its professional sports teams, Louisiana is known for lots of things. As the state’s population continues to grow, so too does its annual visitor count. Unfortunately, this means that accidents are on the rise as well. At Brais Law Firm, we regularly speak with individuals who have suffered serious injuries and lost loved ones in cruise ships and other maritime accidents.

Port NOLA is the home port for several cruise ships as well. This includes the Carnival Glory and Valor, Norwegian Breakaway, Disney Cruise Line Magic, and Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas. These ships cruise to locations including:
