If you were seriously injured while loading and unloading a vessel, you might be worried about covering your extensive medical bills. You are in luck. Seamen are covered by the Jones Act, but maritime workers are eligible to obtain benefits for work-related injuries through the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
At the law firm of Rose, Klein & Marias LLP, we not only represent clients in workers' compensation cases, but we also have a great deal of experience handling injury cases involving longshoremen and harbor workers. We are committed to maximizing compensation for workers who have suffered a boat accident injury.

Experienced Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act Attorneys
As a first step, we carefully investigate accident scenes verifying how boat accident occurred. Our law firm's lawyers also consult your doctor to determine the extent of your injuries. We have experience demonstrating the seriousness of work-related injures to help clients obtain the benefits they need from the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
We take our investigation a step further, to determine if a third-party was liable for additional damages. For example, we investigate cases to determine if injuries are linked to asbestos, silicosis or other toxic exposure as a result of working on ships undergoing repairs or refits. We work to hold manufacturers accountable for exposing workers to the harmful effects of asbestos and silica. The attorneys at our law firm seek the maximum compensation possible from all potential sources.
