Longshore & Harbor Worker

Covering injuries suffered while working on the building, repair, maintenance, loading or unloading of a vessel, Longshore claims can present a myriad of issues. The most common are:

  • Acceptance of the claim
  • Establishing an accurate average weekly wage
  • Authorization for medical conditions or treatment options
  • Return-to-work and vocational issues
  • Lost wage-earning capacity
  • Permanent impairment
  • Future medical expenses

Causey Wright can provide representation to workers with claims before the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs or pending before the Office of Administrative Law Judges. In most cases, attorney fees and costs in a successfully prosecuted claim are paid by the Employer/Carrier.
