Huntingdon-Ingalls Shipyard Injuries And Accidents

A shipyard is a busy place in which everything seems to be moving at once. Accidents are frequent, and often quite severe. At Maggio Law Firm, PC, we represent shipbuilders, shipbreakers, longshoremen, dockworkers, stevedores, crane and forklift operators, and all other workers who put themselves at risk day after day.

Representing Injured Victims From Gulfport And Pascagoula

Stephen Maggio is experienced with almost every kind of shipyard injury. Many of our clients come from Gulfport's Huntingdon-Ingalls Shipyard, formerly known as Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding. We also represent injured individuals from the Pascagoula yard.

Shoreside injuries are of many types and degrees of severity. They include:

  • Crane and forklift accidents
  • Dry dock accidents
  • Scaffolding and ladder accidents
  • Long-term exposure to toxic substances (solvents, paints, cleaners, welding fumes and asbestos)
  • Poorly maintained vessels, gear and tools
  • Rotting or unsecured planking on the dock
  • Dangerous electrical wiring
  • Fires and explosions
  • Hypothermia and drowning

At the Maggio Law Firm, PC, we file claims under The Longshore Act and seek both medical and disability benefits for clients. These include pay for reduced capacity, disfigurement, re-education and reassignment costs. It doesn't matter what kind of work you were doing — indoor, outdoor, repair work or construction. You are still covered by the act.
