Employers and employees in the maritime industry face a number of hazards and dangers each day on the job. These risks are precisely the reason for the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, or LHWCA. Under the umbrella of the LHWCA, maritime workers are protected in case of injury, including permanent partial disabilities, such as hearing loss.
