Michigan River Accidents

The Willis Law Firm Fights for Maritime Workers Injured on Michigan’s Rivers and Inland Waterways

With direct access to Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, Michigan and its rivers play a central role in America’s water-based shipping economy. Michigan’s rivers also provide key connections to inland ports throughout the middle of the country, linking these ports to shipping destinations around the world.

If you or a loved one has been injured while working at one of Michigan’s ports or onboard a tugboat, barge or vessel in the Great Lakes or one of Michigan’s inland waterways, the Willis Law Firm can help you stand up for your legal rights. Maritime injury lawyer David Willis has over 40 years of experience representing workers and their families, and he can use this experience to help make sure you and your family recover the compensation you deserve.  The Jones Act and other maritime laws, provide legal protection and/or rights to injured workers.

Accident on the Great Lakes?

The Great Lakes are among the busiest shipping regions in North America. With ocean-like conditions, the Great Lakes expose seamen and other maritime workers to a variety of dangers on a daily basis; and, unfortunately, it is not uncommon for these dangers to lead to serious injuries. At the Willis Law Firm, we represent clients who have been injured and lost loved ones due to falls, fires, cargo accidents and other incidents throughout the Great Lakes region.

In addition to handling accidents on the Great Lakes, we also regularly represent maritime workers and their family members in cases involving serious and fatal injuries suffered on Michigan’s rivers and inland waterways.
