The Middle Tennessee area is blessed with several navigable rivers that accommodate heavy barge and tow boat traffic. Many of our local industries receive supplies by river traffic, and many persons from our community and surrounding counties are employed in the river boat industry.
When a person is injured on a tow boat, they have special rights that are established by Tennessee Injury Law Specialist. If you or a family member have received an injury while working on a tow boat or barge, they should immediately report the injury to their supervisor and consult with an experienced injury attorney to assure that they receive fair treatment and compensation.
