Morrison Mahoney has a very active Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) practice serving as primary outside counsel to one of the nation’s largest marine defense contractors. We also represent several insurers on a national basis in the defense of LHWCA claims and advise employers and insurers about controlling and managing LHWCA exposure.
Given the multi-dimensional aspects of most LHWCA claims, our extensive experience in the areas of state workers’ compensation, admiralty, employment law, liability defense, and toxic torts makes us uniquely qualified to handle LHWCA claims.
Our team has tried hundreds of LHWCA cases to conclusion. Working with the firm’s renowned appellate practice group, the firm has enjoyed a successful appellate practice before the U.S. Benefits Review Board and U.S. Court of Appeals.
The LHWCA group is skilled at:
- Providing an effective cross-disciplinary approach to the defense of LHWCA claims while minimizing liability in other areas
- Locating and working with experts on an obscure topic
- Defending claims against employers and insurers on several fronts
- Handling other matters brought under the auspices of the United States Department of Labor, including Sarbanes-Oxley matters, the Defense Base Act, and the Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentalities Act
