How can a Chula Vista longshore claims attorney help me?
Workplace injuries involving people who work on docks and many other waterfront jobs are often very different than other on-the-job accidents. That’s because financial compensation for injured maritime workers is covered by the Longshore & Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA), a federal law.
As your Chula Vista longshore claims lawyer, we can:
- Help you file your longshore claim
- Work with you to help you choose the doctor you want from the authorized list of physicians
- If necessary, help you file an appeal if your longshore claim is denied
If your job is covered by the LHWCA, you are entitled to receive two-thirds of your average weekly wages during your recovery. The cost of your medical expenses should also be covered by your employer through an authorized LHWCA insurance provider. The rules are clear, and we know them inside and out.
