The First Thing To Do

When it comes to Longshore Act Cases, nothing is more important than telling the truth. Nothing is more important than your credibility. You need to be up front and honest about every detail about your case.

Do not exaggerate the fine print. If a judge suspects your not being truthful, then they will dismiss your case. Always be honest. Always tell the truth.

The Next Step

Do your research on Longshore Act Cases and order my free book, Win Your Injury Case: The Ultimate No B.S. Guide To Avoiding Insurance Company Tricks That Ruin Your Case [even before you hire a lawyer].

It is full of helpful and useful information when it comes to your Longshore Act Case.

San Diego Longshore Attorney

When you get injured working in the shipyard or on the waterfront, you are looking for answers.  You are entitled to Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA or Longshore Act) benefits. At it’s simplest - we are talking about weekly compensation benefits and medical treatment.

Under the Longshore Act you have a right to a free choice of physician. You must request authorization from the employer/ carrier to be treated by your free choice physician.

When the nature of the injury prevents you from making a choice, the employer may chose for you. However, you may later exercise your free choice physician.

The Employer must pay for the medical treatment furnished by the free choice physician.

If the Employer chooses a doctor for you, you are entitled to choose your free choice physician.

Remember, you must request medical care from the employer/ carrier. Make sure to keep copies of all such requests.

Weekly Disability Benefits (Workers’ Comp)

While you are unable to perform your usual and customary employment, the company/ insurance company must either provide you with temporary total disability benefits or light duty (if you are able to perform light duty).

Permanent Disability

There are two different types of permanent disability - for scheduled injuries and unscheduled injuries.

Fault and Third Party Cases

Just because you were injured doesn't mean you were at fault. Just because you got hurt doesn't mean you did anything wrong. The LHWCA  system is a no-fault system. You get benefits even if your injury was entirely your own fault. Fault doesn't matter in a workers compensation claim unless you have a third party civil case. You can obtain much more money in a third party case because you are able to collect many damages in a civil case than a workers compensation case.
