Harbor Workers' Compensation

The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act is a form of workers' compensation for people who work on commercial boats on or near navigable waters, including dock workers loading and unloading, dock workers, ship builders, doctors and other professionals working on commercial maritime vessels.

Although our practice is based on New York, Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act claims are federal. This means there are many different laws and procedures involved with obtaining benefits. Generally, it is not a hearing-intensive process, but you will most likely have to go through at least one hearing. It is an administrative process for the most part, similar to workers' compensation in many ways.

Our lawyers have a wealth of experience and knowledge helping clients through the process. Attorney Peter Malloy has been handling this type of claim for more than 12 years. If you have been injured as a longshore or harbor worker, we can help you obtain the benefits you need.
