River/Barge Accidents

Pittsburgh River/Barge Accident Attorneys

If You Have Been Injured in a River Barge Accident, Call (844) 383-0565

The Three Rivers are an iconic image of Pittsburgh, and as the source for one of the country's most significant waterways, we see heavy water commerce and traffic. Inevitably, with traffic and complex industry, workers will suffer on-the-job accidents. For river and barge workers, the Jones Act governs compensation for injuries incurred on the sea and rivers.

At the law office of Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh river and barge accident attorneys are highly experienced at handling the complex nature of these boat accident cases and offer a proven record of success. We have worked with injured workers involved in on-the-job boat and barge accidents throughout the region.

Proven Advocates for Workers

Personal injury and workers' compensation claims are a substantial part of our business, and we are proud to have established a history of negotiation and litigation that has recovered substantial results for workers. With increased waterway traffic and maritime injury claims, our attorneys have stepped forward to help protect Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia workers.

If you have been injured or you have lost a loved one in a wrongful death case involving a barge or tow boat accident, it is important to understand your rights. We work using protections provided under the Jones Act to help you and your family recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Hospital bills
  • Long-term care
  • Permanent or partial disability
  • Diminished work ability
  • Lost wages

If you work the rivers, whether on a barge or other professional waterway vessels, and you suffer an accident resulting in disability, broken bones, or slip-and-fall injuries, we can review your case and give you reliable advice on the options open to you.
