Mississippi Industrial Accident Injury Attorney
The Gulfport region of Mississippi is home to many industries, including shipbuilding, oil refineries and offshore oil drilling. Many companies in the Gulfport region build products that support the shipbuilding industry, or are involved in natural gas or livestock processing. All of these industries pose potential risks for employees, because they use heavy machinery extensively.

Attorney James K. Wetzel will meet with you to talk about the workplace accident, how it happened, and who is responsible.
Pursuing Money Damages
Heavy equipment can cause terrible damage to the human body. Scaffolding may be defective and fall down, employees fall off a high platform during the work day, and fellow employees drop tools or equipment. All of these issues combine to make industrial plants dangerous workplaces. We have a track record of success in pursuing compensation for the following serious injuries:
- Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI
- Spinal Cord injuries
- Wrongful death
- Burns caused by fire or explosion
- Electrocution accidents caused by defective equipment or lack of safety training
We help clients assess the seriousness of injuries from industrial accidents, and investigate the cause of the accident, including safety violations, training, and the involvement of a third party. If your employer is at fault, we can help you file a Workers' Compensation claim for medical expenses and lost work time. If the scaffolding was provided by a third party, and was not properly maintained, we can help determine if you have an additional claim for money damages.
