Your Lawyer For Maritime Worker Injuries In Louisiana

The hazards of working as a dock worker, shipbuilder or longshoreman are clear, but no maritime worker expects to be the victim of a serious injury-causing accident.

If you were injured on navigable U.S. waters, on the docks or in a shipyard, you should seek counsel from a lawyer with strong knowledge of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). Based in Slidell, maritime injuries attorney Laurie W. Maschek aggressively pursues all available compensation for workers injured on the North Shore, in and near New Orleans and in surrounding Louisiana parishes. She will:

  • Immediately prioritize your case and provide the personal, focused attention you deserve
  • Analyze all aspects of your situation, explain your rights and ensure that your Longshore Act claim is filed properly and in a timely fashion
  • Address any problems you encounter getting quality medical care and rehabilitation services, receiving disability payments or collecting other benefits — by pursuing an administrative review and taking your case to the Department of Labor or federal court if necessary

Clear Counsel And Decisive Action For People Hurt Onshore Or At Sea

Many who work on oil rigs and other vessels, as harbor workers and in other maritime occupations, know that they have coverage under the LHWCA but do not know the right procedures for protecting their rights to compensation. That is where we come in at Laurie W. Maschek, Attorney at Law, LLC. Whatever your exact injury or injuries and however they occurred, you can count on straight answers directly from a compassionate, tough lawyer with more than 15 years of experience.
