Shipyard Injuries & Getting The Compensation YOU and YOUR Family Deserves

My Best Advice

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.

My Second Best Advice

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.

Shipyard Workers and Ship Repair Workers

You don’t need us telling you how dangerous it is to work in a shipyard. You see the grave danger faced by working day to day in a shipyard.  Truth be told, most shipyard workers suffer some type of injury during their career.  If you are a seriously injured shipyard worker or ship repair worker - you need to know your rights.  We suggest you do as hundreds of maritime workers do every month - use our website to help win your Longshore case.
