Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act

San Diego Longshore Act Benefits Lawyers

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on June 1, 2011 - Comments off

There are thousands of commercial vessels that come into the Port of San Diego every year, making it easily accessible for send and receive cargo, as well as a popular place to set sail one of the many cruise ships. Hence, the men and women who work along the docks put their lives on the line to make sure that the ships that come in and out of this port run smoothly and that the port stays uncongested, despite any dangerous work conditions that were overlooked.
The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), or Longshore Act, is designed to protect dockworkers that are injured or killed while performing their duties on land. Because of the complicated laws that constrain longshoremen, filing a compensation claim can be a difficult and time-consuming process. Fortunately, the San Diego LHWCA benefits lawyers at Jurewitz Law Group can help you get the benefits you need and deserve. Call our attorneys for a free consultation at (888) 223-5020.
