“Capable & Determined”
Kenneth G. Franconero, PLLC represents citizens and foreign workers, in making sure that they receive all the medical and wage loss benefits they are entitled to under the law. Many of these workers were injured in Afghanistan and Iraq, providing military support services. Our clients include but are not limited to workers employed in reconnaissance, logistics, linguists, security, building contractors, telephony, computers, electricians, plumbing, carpentry and HVAC repair.
What is the Defense Base Act?
The Defense Base Act is a generous law which provides injured workers significantly higher benefits then what would have been afforded under comparable state law. However, it is important to speak with someone knowledgeable about the law before deferring to the insurance carrier’s instructions. We recognize the tremendous sacrifice that government contractor workers are making to the U.S. National security.
What is the Longshore and Harborworkers’ Compensation Act?
Our attorney staff represents longshoreman and dockworkers whose workers’ compensation benefits are paid under the Longshore and Harborworkers’ Compensation Act (“LHWCA”) and related Federal laws.
The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) is a federal law that provides for the payment of compensation, medical care, and vocational rehabilitation services to employees disabled from on the job injuries that occur on the navigable waters of the United States, or in adjoining areas customarily used in the loading, unloading, repairing, or building of a vessel. The LHWCA covers employees in traditional maritime occupations such as longshore workers, ship-repairers, shipbuilders or ship-breakers, and harbor construction workers. (www.dol.gov)
