What benefits are available to employees?

DBA / LHWCA insurance services are considered to be superior to "regular" employee compensation system services. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

-67% of your average weekly salary until you can go to work.

-Full medical care when you need to treat your wound until you have completely healed or reached the -maximum possible recovery point.

DBA / LHWCA claims can be very complex, especially when dealing with disability issues. With that in mind, these claims are "winnable" but you'll need help from a lawyer who:

-Understand the complex legal framework for a DBA / LHWCA claim and know how to apply it to your unique injury.

-Have access to specialists in all disciplines, especially in physical medicine/rehabilitation.

-Have sufficient prior knowledge to accurately assess the potential for an injured worker to fully recover from the injury.
