1. Permanent Partial Disability

If you are in a longshore accident, you may be eligible to receive permanent partial disability, which is compensation for the permanent loss or use of certain functions or parts of the body. Losing your hearing, vision or a limb can be debilitating at first, and you know your bills won’t stop just because you had to stop working.

2. Temporary Partial and Permanent Partial Disability

If you qualify for temporary partial and permanent partial disability, you will receive compensation that is equivalent to two-thirds of your weekly wage loss, which will surely help cover the medical bills from the accident.

3. Permanent Partial Disability for Retirees

If you are a retired longshoremen, and you suffer the onset of a latent disease that is related to your working years, you could be eligible for permanent partial disability for retirees.

4. Death Benefits

If a longshoremen passes because of an accident, his children, widow or anyone else who he claimed as a dependent may be eligible to receive compensation.

Your Pompano Beach personal injury lawyer may be able to get you compensation.

Every case is different, but Maus has been practicing for long enough that he’s seen the most common types of accidents over and over again. As a Pompano Beach personal injury lawyer, he has also seen his fair share of longshoremen accidents.
