Workers Compensation Lawyer Pascagoula: Shipyard Injuries
Video Transcript:This is Jonathan Franco at Haug, Farrar & Franco and I wanted to talk to you about workers compensation cases in Pascagoula in Jackson County, Mississippi. Pascagoula is a city of interest within workers compensation because there are several shipyards including VT Halter and Ingalls shipyards that are located in Pascagoula. Claims that occur in those shipyards for injured workers are often governed by the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act and what that is, is a specialized act within workers compensation. It’s federal law that’s governed by the Department of Labor in the office of administrative law judges. So you need a lawyer that’s familiar with that set of laws and there’s only, there’s relatively few lawyers that practice within that field. And actually I’ve been practicing in that field and I’ve been handling these cases for many years and I’ve handled a good bit of them and I’m familiar with it. So if you’ve been injured at a shipyard in Pascagoula and you have questions about your claim or you’re not getting the medical treatment and the benefits that you think you’re entitled to give us a call give , me a call here at Haug, Farrar & Franco 228-872-8752 and I’d be happy to discuss it with you , thank you.
