Miami Longshore & Harbor Worker Lawyer

Get Compensation for Your Work Injury

Men and women who perform longshore and harbor work are often in dangerous circumstances. If they are injured on the job, they may receive benefits under the Longshoreman & Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA). The LHWCA helps them recover lost wages and medical benefits. However, with its short filing deadline, there is no time for mistakes when applying for benefits.

Our Attonrney, Michael C. Black, offers more than 20 years of experience helping injured longshore and harbor workers. In addition to your LHWCA benefits, you may be entitled to other compensation if a defective product or a third party was involved. We can help you file your claim and seek damages. Please call our office in Miami at (305) 964-8792 for a free consultation.

Shoreside Workers Claims

In most circumstances, there is a one-year time limit for filing injury claims under the LHWCA. That is why it is important to make sure you are filing the claim correctly. An experienced Miami maritime attorney can help you include the necessary information and submit the claim on time.

The LHWCA covers many types of harbor workers such as:

  • Crane operators
  • Stevedores
  • Ship repairmen
  • Ship builders
  • Forklift operators

Typical injuries caused by longshore and harbor worker accidents include: Neck and back injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, arm and shoulder injuries, repetitive stress injuries and wrongful death.
