Our San Diego Defense Base Act and Longshore Act attorneys can help facilitate that these benefits are paid directly by an authorized self-insured employer; or through an authorized insurance carrier; or, in particular circumstances, by a special fund administered directly by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
The LHWCA is administered by the Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP) Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation (DLHWC) of the DOL.
Generally, an injured worker is entitled to disability benefits (in most cases 2/3 of their Average Weekly Wage) and is allowed access to medical treatment while they recover from the injury. The amount of benefits owed, the scope of the medical treatment to be provided, and the overall value of the claim/injury are all important issues that should be distilled down by a knowledgeable San Diego Defense Base Act and Longshore Act attorney well versed in the DBA.
