South Carolina Maritime Accident Lawyers
The maritime industry is big in South Carolina. Each year, more than 30 different maritime shipping lines serve 150 countries through South Carolina’s ports, mainly the Port of Charleston and the Port of Georgetown.
Maritime work is hazardous. Vessels at sea are as likely to become involved in accidents as motor vehicles on land. Accidents on water also carry the hazards of drowning, hypothermia and other risks. Moving goods, materials and equipment on and off ships at South Carolina ports also subjects maritime workers to accidents that may lead to serious injuries or death.
