Getting injured on the job is a terrible and frightening thing. It can become a confusing and frustrating matter, on top of the pain and financial stress. You need a professional who specializes in helping longshore workers, federal contractors and shipyard workers.

Longshore Act

The Longshore Act covers disability or death of a worker occurring upon navigable waters such as the Ohio River, Lake Erie and Kanawha River including any adjoining pier, wharf, dry dock or terminal. It is a no fault based system of workers’ compensation.

Defense Base Act

The DBA covers persons employed at United States' defense bases overseas. The DBA is designed to provide medical treatment and compensation to employees of defense contractors injured in the scope and course of employment.

War Hazards Act

The War Hazards Act was enacted during World War II to cover civilian workers in combat zones. Today it covers contractors working for American companies in Iraq, Afghanistan and other high risk nations.
