Most importantly, we are accessible by phone, email and text. We’ve heard the stories about waiting hours on hold for a lawyer to call back, or meeting your lawyer for the first time at Court. That will not happen at Gursky|Wiens.
If you are a longshoreman or dock worker injured in a shipyard accident, you may be entitled to compensation under the Longshore and Harbor Workers´ Compensation Act (LHWCA), or possibly even state workers’ compensation. Under one of these laws, you may be entitled to compensation for injury, lost wages, medical expenses and more. We will help you determine which law will provide you the most financial compensation to support you while you are unable to work.
If you get hurt at work as the result of the negligence or someone who is not an employee and you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under the Longshore Act or a state workers’ compensation, you may have the right to bring a third party claim against that person or that person’s employer.
