About Longshore Injury
For those that work on the navigable waters of the United States, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) is a federal law that provides compensation, medical care, and rehabilitation services to employees that have been injured or contracted an occupational disease on the job. Longshoremen are those that work inland loading, unloading, repairing, and building vessels, as well as other harbor work. These jobs are dangerous and often put workers at extreme risk of injuries, increasing the possibility and caliber of workplace accidents.
