Third Party Claims
Longshore and maritime work can be dangerous. Harbor workers and marine construction workers are surrounded by dangerous machinery on a daily basis. Defective equipment or negligence by a third-party can lead to serious injury.
If you have been injured by a third party on the job, you may be eligible for a third party claim. People covered under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act may be entitled to compensation for injuries and medical costs including rehabilitation services, as well as disability benefits. If your injury was the result of a third party or if your accident happened on a vessel, you might be able to seek additional compensation.
Because of the involvement of a third party, these are not simple worker’s compensation cases, and need to be handled by a firm with expertise. Montagna Klein Camden has years of experience with third party claims. We’ll pursue justice and compensation for your injuries.
