Understand the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act

If you're not familiar with the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA), you should know that it is a federal law that makes sure that employees hurt on the navigable waters of the U.S. are able to obtain medical care, compensation and vocational rehabilitation. This law also covers those who are working in areas used for the unloading, loading, building or repairing of a vessel.

Preventing maritime injuries takes vigilance

Working on the deck of a seafaring vessel provides a unique workspace. You can see the beauty of the open water while you work. However, you have to remain acutely aware of the dangers you face. Seamen face the possibility of catastrophic injuries or even death each time they're on a vessel.

Discuss your rights during a free consultation. There’s no fee unless we win.
