Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act

At The Ray Firm, we specialize in various legal fields. There can be many accidents and injuries on navigable waters. The Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act is a federal law that will provide compensation to those injured on the water. This compensation also extends to workers building vessels and survivors at sea. The Ray Firm knows The Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act inside and out. We will make sure your compensation battle is fought correctly and with intelligence. If you are a longshore worker, ship-repairer, shipbuilder or ship-breaker, or harbor construction workers with a major injury, call today!

Defense Based Act (DBA)

Defense Based Act claims are another special set of laws that we know like the back of our hand. While these claims are processed in the same court as The Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act, they deal with a different set of laws that requires a real expert to tackle. DBA is a type of workers’ compensation for employees of a federal government contractor that are injured in the country or abroad. An example of this would be, a man maintaining a warehouse for the Army in Afghanistan that injures his leg during a forklift operation. If you feel that you apply to this type of claim do not hesitate to call us today!
