Longshore Shipyard Workers

Longshore And Harbor Workers Compensation Attorneys

Longshore workers face numerous occupational dangers every day. Injuries can result in severe hardships, including steep medical bills and missed time from work.

If you work in a shipyard or waterfront occupation and have been injured on the job, your claim will fall under the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA). The LHWCA covers a broad range of maritime occupations, including:

  • Shipbuilders
  • Stevedores
  • Dock workers
  • Terminal workers
  • Seamen
  • Crane operators
  • Engineers
  • Vessel repair workers

Longshore occupations are often not covered under state workers' compensation laws. For effective legal representation, you must work with an attorney who is experienced in LHWCA claims. At Thiry & Caddell, LLP , we have more than 50 years of experience representing injured workers in Alabama, including those in maritime occupations.

If a third party is responsible for your injury, you may pursue a claim under personal injury law, depending on the circumstances of your accident.

If your injury has left you disabled, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. We are a full-service injury and disability law firm and can help you explore all avenues of compensation.
