Types of Work Covered Under The Longshore & Harbor Workers Compensation Act


“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S., I want it straight up. I figure you do also.”- Bill Turley

Nothing is more important than your credibility with the judge. You must always tell the truth. Every case had good or bad facts. You need to be up front and honest with your lawyer about everything. Always tell the truth. Always, no matter what it is you might be worried about.

If a judge thinks you are not being honest, you will have your case dismissed. I have witnessed it many times in court due to one white lie.  You must always be honest and truthful about your injury.

The Biggest Misconception Injured Workers Have of The Longshore Act System

There's a huge misconception about Longshore Act that needs to be dispelled right now for you to understand why you'll need a lawyer to fight for your benefits if you have been injured on the job:

Just because you have a legitimate injury and cannot work, it does not mean that you will receive Longshore Act benefits. That's because benefits are paid by your employer's insurance company, which has an arsenal of lawyers who are paid to deny your claim.

Years of Experience on Your Side

When the other side has a lawyer, you need one, too. Too often, injured workers are out-lawyered by the insurance company. The Turley Law Firm attorneys go toe to toe with the big insurance company lawyers. We will do will do all we can to ensure that you collect the benefits to which you are due. The thousands of cases we have won have given us the best experience possible to handle your case in the most effective way possible.

We know the in's and out's of gathering medical evidence, filing well-documented claims, and appearing at hearings. We know how to protect you from insurance company attempts to poke holes in your case, and we know how to handle all types of hearings and appeals before the Office of Administrative Law Judges.
