3 Types of Longshoremen Claims That You Could Get Compensation For

Harbor employees and longshoremen have dangerous and physically exhausting jobs, especially those in South Florida. Accidents are common at three major ports in the region: Port of Palm, Port of Miami and Port Everglades. Learn about a few of the compensation options available to longshoremen below:

1. Permanent Or Partial Loss

Compensation is owed to those with partial or permanent loss of usability in certain functions or parts of the body. For example, usability loss of a hand, arm, leg, hearing, vision, etc. would be legal grounds for compensation.

2. Disability, Whether It Is Temporary Or Permanent

Two-thirds of an employee’s weekly wage loss will account for a portion of what a compensated employee must receive.

3. Retirees

If a retired worker experiences effects from an underlying occupational disease, the requisite compensation will be two-thirds of the National Average Weekly Wage, times the percentage of damage the illness caused.
