Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act

Our Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation practice group is a highly specialized team from our Workers’ Compensation Practice Group that is dedicated to handling workplace injuries involving maritime employees.

These claims are brought before the United States Department of Labor and adhere to the federal statute and body of administrative law that offers compensation and medical care to employees disabled from injuries occurring on the navigable waters of the United States, or in adjoining areas customarily used in loading, unloading, repairing, or building a vessel.
