2020 Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Defense Handbook

2020 Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Law Handbook

The “Go To” Handbook for Defending Longshore and Defense Base Act Claims.

We regularly defend Longshore and Defense Act claims in behalf of a diverse array of clients, ranging from large project owners, OCIP and CCIPs, insurance carriers, self-insured employers, third party claim administrators, and longshore employers operating across the maritime industry, such as stevedoring companies, marine terminals and marine contractors. We also defend the insurance carriers who insure employers against these types of maritime claims and employers. To provide and overview of the law and provide practical claims-handling advice, Greg Lois created this plain English guidebook for claims adjusters, risk professionals, and attorneys.

Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Best Practices.

This book covers the basics of the Lonsghore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act with references to the LHWCA, practical tips for defending claims brought under the Act, and review of recent relevant case law.

Defense Base Act Practical Guide.

This book covers the differences between the LHWCA and the Defense Base Act, as well as provides a practical guide to defending DBA claims brought by employees doing public work overseas, including  government-related construction projects, work connected with the national defense, or employment under a service contract supporting either activity.  This handbook discusses working abroad both in- and out- of the “zone of special danger” and provides practical guidance to risk professionals.
