Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation

Our Practice

The Longshore practice group at YCRLAW defends claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Act (LHWA), the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act, and the Defense Base Act. The attorneys in this group litigate in federal and state courts. The ability to handle both Longshore claims and accompanying workers’ compensation claims arising under concurrent state jurisdiction results in more cost-effective litigation and satisfactory outcomes for our clients. The members of the Longshore group draw on their experience handling claims at federal and state levels to work toward the best possible outcome in each matter.

The attorneys in the Longshore group are dedicated to staying abreast of all legal developments pertaining to the LHWA and are committed to providing the highest quality and most efficient legal representation available to our clients at a value that recognizes the realities of today’s marketplace.
