The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, commonly referred to as the “Longshore Act” or “LHWCA” is a federal statute that provides medical benefits and compensation for longshore workers injured on rivers, dry docks, wharfs, docks, piers, harbors,or barges.

We service Hampton Roads Virginia, Morehead City & Wilmington North Carolina, Charleston South Carolina, Savannah Georgia, and Jacksonville Florida.

The LHWCA provides hearing impaired harbor workers with applicable medical treatment, including payment for hearing aids by the employer throughout the rest of the harbor worker’s life.

To file a claim, you must produce an audiogram which measures and explains your hearing loss, and give notice of your injury to your last maritime employer within 30 days of when you receive a copy of your audiogram.
