As a longshoreman or dock worker, your job can often be strenuous. If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to benefits and/or compensation from your employer. Your injury may be covered by the Longshoreman and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, which is specific to shipping and docking industries. 

Longshoremen often sustain repetitive motion injuries (RMIs) from lifting heavy objects, reaching, pulling, and bending. More serious injuries include slip and fall accidents, machinery-related, electrocution, and even drowning.
