Longshore & Harbor

Workers' Compensation Act

Kevin A. Moore represents clients like you

Fighting for compensation to injured workers and beneficiaries

Similar to the Jones Act, the Longshore Act (LHWCA) is designed to hold employers or insurance companies responsible after a worker is injured on the job. An important difference is that the Longshore Act covers a different group of workers than the Jones Act. Specifically it covers workers in the areas of loading, unloading, crafting, and repairing a sea vessel – or workers who do not directly aid the function or mission of a sea vessel. This includes harbor workers, shipbuilders, ship repairers, and longshore workers. The Law Firm of Kevin A. Moore is highly experienced in working under the Longshore Act, and can help you navigate the proper claims in order to win fair compensation for your injuries.

Fighting for Your Rights

Coverage Under the Longshore Act

If you meet the requirements of the LHWCA then you will automatically be covered, however you are not guaranteed compensation under the Act. If you have suffered an injury that meets Longshore Act conditions then there is a specific process to go through with the oversight agency The Office of Worker’s Compensation Programs (OWCP).

The process can be complex, and it is best navigated by an experienced Longshore Act attorney like Kevin A. Moore. In order to take advantage of the full benefits of the Act, and to win as much compensation that is allowed by law, contact the Firm right away. The Longshore Act can cover medical care, rehabilitation, missed work days, future lost wages, and survivor benefits.

I wasn’t sure about hiring an attorney, but I decided to contact Kevin Moore. From the beginning everything was made very simple.

Willie R.

Kevin A. Moore took my case very seriously from the start. Worker’s Compensation laws had been violated by the company I worked for, and Mr. Moore quickly got to work on my behalf. He would personally call me with updates and was available whenever I needed to speak with him. I never once was relegated to a legal assistant or office personnel. Mr. Moore personally took my calls. Additionally, very little effort was needed on my part. The way he set me up to sign documents is a very easy process and didn’t involve me running all over town to find a fax machine. His concern was for me as a person and not on the amount of money he could make. He took on a giant corporation, Amazon, on my behalf, working diligently to get me a settlement that not only paid back the money I was owed, but also additional funds to make up for neglecting to do what was right in the first place.
