Helping Recover Compensation For Longshore Worker Injuries

Longshore and dock workers who are injured in an accident at work are likely eligible to collect compensation under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA). This is a federal law that operates much like a state workers' comp law. It is important to seek help from an experienced lawyer who can help guide you through this process to ensure that you recover the full compensation you deserve.

Michael L HebertI am Michael Hebert, an attorney in Baton Rouge with more than 30 years of experience. My legal practice is dedicated to helping injured victims get the assistance they need following a serious accident. If you have been seriously injured while working at a dock or shipyard in Louisiana, call me at 225-612-9444 to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

LHWCA Eligibility

The LHWCA covers a wide range of workers within the maritime industry, including:

  • Shipbuilders
  • Offshore oil rig workers
  • Longshore workers
  • Dock workers
  • Crane operators

The LHWCA does not apply to workers who spend time out at sea or on navigable waters. Workers who are injured while out at sea will likely need to pursue compensation under the federal Jones Act. When you meet with me, I will thoroughly review the circumstances of your accident and determine which program will give you the best chance of recovering the compensation you need.

Contact Me For A Free Initial Consultation

Longshore worker injuries are serious and can leave families without a source of income for long periods of time. I will work hard to help you get the financial assistance you need to help you through this difficult period. For a free initial consultation, call 225-612-9444. You may also contact me online. I handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you owe me nothing unless I am successful in recovering compensation on your behalf.
