Workers’ Compensation Legal Representation

All employers are legally required to provide employees with a safe working environment. Nevertheless, each year, millions of Americans are injured in work-related accidents.

In Florida, employers must purchase workers’ compensation insurance, which provides benefits to employees whose injuries arise out of and in the course of their employment. This insurance protects employees regardless of fault.

Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act

The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) provides employment-injury and occupational-disease protection to approximately 500,000 workers who are injured or contract occupational diseases occurring on the navigable waters of the United States, or in adjoining areas, and for certain other classes of workers covered by extensions of this Act including The Defense Base Act, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, the Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act and the District of Columbia Workmen’s Compensation Act.

These benefits are paid directly by an authorized self-insured employer; or through an authorized insurance carrier; or, in particular circumstances, by a special fund administered directly by the Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation, Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

If you have been injured on the job and need help determining if you are eligible for benefits under the The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, you won’t have to pay to find out if we may be able to help.
