Longshore Workers

You are a longshore worker who suffered a maritime injury, and all you want to think about is getting better. But your health, your family and your livelihood still need to be protected.

If you’ve been injured while engaged in maritime employment such as working on a vessel, call the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act attorneys of Montagna Klein Camden to discuss your rights to compensation.

The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, commonly referred to as the “Longshore Act” or “LHWCA” is a federal statute that provides medical benefits and compensation for longshore workers injured on ship terminals, shipyards, docks, piers, and marine ways.

If the worker’s injury results in death, the Longshore Act may provide benefits to the survivors.

No Boundaries Law

Often times, multiple persons or entities are responsible for a single incident. If a company other than your employer contributed to your injury, we’ll make sure they pay for their faults, as much as is allowed by the law. That’s the “No Boundaries” law practice Montagna Klein Camden is known for.

We represent injured or disabled workers on a contingency fee basis. This means that we don’t get paid unless you win. We’re very confident in our ability to get you the benefits you deserve.
