How to Recover Compensation for an On-the-Job Injury

Dock worker injury claims follow a similar process to standard workers’ compensation procedures, but qualified employees can receive specialized benefits through the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA).

In the aftermath of a workplace accident, your health should be your main focus. A dock injury can be severe, and in some cases could render the victim permanently disabled or with long-term complications. Some of these injuries could leave an employee unable to work for a very long time.

A maritime accident can result in:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) — mild, moderate, or severe
  • First-, second-, or third-degree burns
  • Amputation
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Disease caused by toxic exposure

Once you are safe and get the medical care you need, report the injury to your employer. For assistance throughout the workers’ compensation claims process, contact Herbert Chestnut & Associates.
