Could a Horrific Port Accident Happen Here in Houston? 

Houston Chronicle and national news reported in March about the tragic accident at the Baltimore Harbor. Innocent workers lost their lives as a result of what appears to be clear carelessness.

The horrific and terrifying video of the ship crash against the bridge is devastating. Could something like this happen in Houston?

Our firm has represented individuals that have been injured as a result of a ship crash in Port Houston against portions of the 610 bridge. Similarly, carelessness occurred in that location, causing the accident.

The busiest waterway in the nation, the Houston Ship Channel has almost as much vessel traffic as Los Angeles, Long Beach, and New York/New Jersey combined. The Port of Houston takes great lengths to keep safe all travelers through its waterways. An incredible team of Coast Guard personnel work day to day with state, federal, local, and commercial partners to manage risk and increase resiliency at the port.

The tragedy in Baltimore should remind us all that safety should always be number one in the mind of those working through and at the port.
