Representing Injured Seamen

For longshoremen, harbor workers and shipbuilders injured on the job, there is a separate federal system in place to recover workers' compensation. If you or a loved one were injured while loading, unloading, repairing or building a vessel, schedule a free consultation to discuss your accident and injuries with a lawyer.

With decades of experience, the attorneys at Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C., are prepared to handle even the most complex injury cases. We understand how frightening it is to face financial peril due to a work injury. Our goal is to answer your questions honestly and aggressively pursue the maximum compensation you are owed for your injuries.

Longshore And Harbor Workers Compensation Act

The Longshore And Harbor Workers Compensation Act was drafted to develop a process separate from the traditional workers' compensation process. If you were injured on the water, a pier, wharf, dry dock or terminal, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation for your lost wages and medical treatment.

We are prepared to handle cases involving serious injuries, including:

  • Amputation
  • Crush injuries
  • Multiple fractures
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis
  • Burns by fire, electricity or chemicals
