Helping Injured Longshoreman And Harbor Workers Off The Gulf Coast
Longshore workers and harbor workers are provided workers’ compensation benefits by the federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). You do not need to prove negligence or wrongdoing by another employee or your employer. You are entitled to benefits regardless of fault.
Filing for benefits and ensuring that you receive the maximum benefits for your injury can be complicated. At Frischhertz & Impastato, in New Orleans, Louisiana, we work to obtain the compensation our clients along the Louisiana coast deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent injury, retraining, and pain and suffering. If it is in your best interests, we can help you file for workers’ comp benefits and get the medical attention you need in Louisiana.
