Rights of Longshoremen New Orleans

The job of a longshoreman is quite difficult. From loading and unloading cargo to operating equipment, rigging cargo and transferring loaded trailers, longshoremen are constantly busy. Major port cities provide longshoremen employment, with positions open on a regular basis as the hours of work are long and the tasks difficult. In the industry, there are safety regulations that must be followed within the terminal areas to ensure the safety of employees, particularly when heavy-weight equipment is involved. At Cueria Law Firm, we have found that even though these regulations are in place, serious accidents still take place on a regular basis. When an injury occurs, longshoremen should contact our personal injury attorneys. When we are involved early-on, we can provide an investigation of the accident. With our professional help, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injury based on maritime law.

The Rights of Longshoremen Based on Maritime Law

The work completed within a marine terminal requires the use of machinery. To operate such machinery, a longshoreman must have the right skill and experience to use the machinery safely. There is a high potential for injury within this industry, so much so that the National Maritime Safety Administration was created to help protect the rights of employees who handle marine cargo in the US. Our personal injury attorneys have experience in maritime law and can easily apply the right laws to your case based on the injury.

The National Maritime Safety Administration works with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to ensure that longshoremen are provided with a wealth of information including resources for safety training. Employers need to ensure that employees are trained properly to use the heavy machinery for cargo loading and unloading for a safe work environment. The negligence of others or improper training can easily lead to an accident.
