Frantz Law Group, represents maritime workers in accident cases filed under the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and other federal statutes. Our law firm will provide vigorous, results-oriented representation designed to obtain the best possible settlement or jury award for you. Are you a construction worker who was injured while working on a bridge, dock, jetty or another maritime structure? You may be able to file a claim under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. This could enable you to obtain significantly more compensation than you would receive from a regular workers’ compensation claim.
The benefits of the Longshore Act includes all medical expenses, rehabilitation as well as your cost of travel to receive the treatment. It also provides compensation for all types of disabilities. If death has resulted while on-the-job, the widow/widower or other eligible survivors are entitled to reasonable funeral expenses up to a maximum of $3000.
Who are covered by the Longshore Act?
In addition to the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, you may also file for the Jones Act or Merchant Marine Act of 1920. This statute protects seamen who are injured or killed while working on a vessel in navigable waters. The Jones Act is a fault-based system, which means that proving negligence is of utmost importance to receive compensation.
How to qualify for benefits?
