Accidents in New York Ports

With its unique geography and status as the financial capital of the world, New York is home to several ports that serve numerous cruise ships, cargo ships, and other vessels daily. New York City’s reputation as a tourist destination brings cruise passengers to the city in droves, and workers who live both in New York and across the Hudson River work in all types of maritime occupations on New York’s shores.

Lawyers for Cruise Passengers, Maritime Workers and Families in New York

In New York’s upstate region, ports on the shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario are also growing increasingly busy. Rochester and Buffalo are both hubs of maritime commerce, and these cities have their own unique attractions as well.

Unfortunately, New York’s high volume of ship traffic also means that maritime injuries are common. At Brais Law Firm, we have decades of experience representing passengers, crewmembers, longshoremen, harbor workers and their families. If you have been injured and you live in New York, work in New York, or were visiting New York on a cruise, our lawyers can help you fight for the financial compensation you deserve.
