Longshore & Harbor Workers

Saalfield Shad’s lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the United States Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA). This is a unique area of workers’ compensation. Because we are located in a port city, identifying and responding appropriately to these claims is imperative. Jones Act, Seaworthiness, Maintenance and Cure, and a host of other collateral laws and doctrines must be recognized and understood to handle the claims appropriately.
