Longshore Act in Action – Real-World Cases






This blog covers some real-world cases so you can better understand how the Longshore and Harbor Workers’
Compensation Act works in real time.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, USA, May 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — You have probably, at some point in your life, looked at the instructions on a piece of furniture that you buy at Target or IKEA and think, “Sure, that looks as easy as 1-2-3, there’s just a few steps here.” Has it then played out that when you actually try to put that piece of furniture together it is like you are living a nightmare from which you can never escape?

You have also probably looked at a recipe before the big dinner, maybe when you are shopping for the ingredients, and said to yourself, “No problem, this recipe looks easy, I got this.” Then, has it happened that you can’t seem to get it all together when you are actually trying to cook the meal, or your dinner looks like a slightly brown, squished version of the picture in the cookbook?

Strangely enough, those real-life examples tell us something about the law as well. Many times, you can read a statute, rule, or regulation and think that it seems to make sense and it seems pretty clear. Yet, when you actually try to apply that statute, rule, or regulation to a certain situation, all of the sudden you find that a word is ambiguous or does not quite fit with the specific facts with which you are dealing.

It is for that reason that you should periodically have a check in, where you see a law in action to understand how it really works. With regard to the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (Longshore Act), we can blog about different provisions, discuss situs and status, and even define the difference between scheduled and unscheduled injuries. However, applying those rules and definitions to examples demonstrates how the Longshore Act works in action, in the real world.

Accordingly, we are going to provide you with some recent Longshore Act cases that will help give a little perspective and context to the abstract rules that we often discuss in our Longshore Act and Defense Base Act blogs.

Of course, if you are dealing with a work-related injury yourself, and want to learn more about the Longshore Act rules that apply to your specific situation, do not hesitate to call the top workers’ comp attorneys in Jacksonville, FL – Doolittle & Tucker – for a free consultation today. You can schedule time with one of our top-notch Longshore Act attorneys by calling 904-396-1734.

Recent Case #1: The Widow and the Third-Party Settlements

In the case of Beverly Hale v. BAE, a ship repair worker died as a result of exposure to asbestos in his employment. Two of his daughters filed lawsuits in court against the asbestos manufacturers. In addition, the worker’s widow filed Longshore Act claim for survivor’s benefits.

Under the Longshore Act (Section 33 to be exact), an injured worker or the family of a deceased worker may sue for the work-related injuries in court, but an employer may off-set any money it would have paid to an injured or deceased worker if that worker (or his family) received money from those lawsuits. In other words, if someone is getting money from a lawsuit, then the employer can factor in that income when determining how much to pay in workers’ compensation benefits.

The issue in the case became: Will the widow’s survivor benefits be reduced because the widow may receive money from the two lawsuits brought by the daughters?

The widow tried to avoid losing survivor benefits through the Longshore Act by signing two disclaimers, renouncing her interest in the two lawsuits. However, the daughters ultimately settled the lawsuits on behalf of the deceased worker’s “heirs.” The widow was one of the worker’s “heirs.”

The Department of Labor’s Administrative Law Judge decided that the widow’s disclaimers were not enough, and that the employer could reduce her Longshore Act benefits based on the fact that she was an “heir” who would receive money from the settlement of the two lawsuits. On appeal, the Benefits Review Board agreed.

The moral of this case. Section 33 of the Longshore Act allows the family of a deceased worker to sue third parties in court based on an employment-related death. However, that same section also provides that the amount of benefits a family member can receive under the Longshore Act will be reduced based on the money received from the lawsuit.

Recent Case #2: The Word “Employee” and the Clerical Exclusion

As you may know, the Longshore Act provides workers’ compensation for certain types of employees. Specifically, under the Act an “employee” is any person engaged in maritime employment, including a longshoreman or person engaging in longshoring operations. It also covers any harbor worker such as a shipbuilder, ship repairman, or ship breaker.

Importantly, Section 2(3)(A) of the Longshore Act (the so-called “clerical exception”) states that the term “employee” does not include: “Individuals employed exclusively to perform office clerical, secretarial, security, or data processing work.”

In the case of Motton v. Huntington Ingalls Indus., a person with the title of Drawing Clerk made a claim under the Longshore Act. Her duties were to retrieve documents from trade workers (such as blueprints), verify that they were current, and then check them in and out, similar to a library. Her duties did not involve boarding ships.

The Administrative Law Judge denied Longshore Act benefits, finding that she fell under the clerical exception. Ms. Motton, however, claimed that she should be covered because her duties, though clerical, were essential to the loading and unloading of vessels. The Benefits Review Board affirmed the denial of benefits because the specific clerical exception superseded the fact that her functions were essential to operations.

The Drawing Clerk was covered, however, by the state’s workers’ compensation law instead.

The moral of this case. Be aware that there are exceptions to coverage under the Longshore Act, the clerical exception being one. So, if you work at a dock, consider whether your duties may be considered “clerical” and therefore outside the Longshore Act.

Attorney Mark Whitehead Explains the VA Compensation Process During Interview

Disability attorney Marc Whitehead

Disability attorney Marc Whitehead

Disability attorney Whitehead explained the complexities and challenges involved with seeking veterans compensation claims.

Anytime a veteran has a disabling condition that affects them physically at whatever stage of life they happen to be in, they can file a claim for veteran’s compensation. ”

— Attorney Marc Whitehead

HOUSTON, TX, USA , May 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Disability attorney Marc Whitehead recently spoke with AskTheLawyers.com™ about veterans’ disability benefits.

In the interview, attorney Whitehead explained the complexities and challenges involved with seeking veterans compensation claims.

He explained that veterans compensation requires a service-related injury sustained while the claimant was enlisted. He gave an overview of the entire process and explained what a claimant can expect, including how long it takes to receive compensation. He said that lawyers are not allowed to help a claimant in the process unless a denial is issued. Many claims are denied due to an alleged lack of evidence of a disabling injury. After a denial, Whitehead urges contacting an attorney to help with your appeal. He also explained whether or not an attorney needs to be accredited with the VA system, the prospect of receiving Social Security Disability benefits in addition to veterans compensation, and what family members of deceased veterans can do to receive benefits.

Whitehead said VA compensation can apply toward any incident or illness.

“Anytime a veteran has a disabling condition that affects them physically at whatever stage of life they happen to be in, they can file a claim for veteran’s compensation,” he said.

He gave an example of an officer in the Air Force working on a plane who fell and hurt his back. At the time, it seemed like a minor injury. However, 30-some years later, that same claimant began experiencing massive back pain. Whitehead helped the main obtain benefits based on his service-related injury.

Marc Whitehead is a disability attorney based in Houston, TX, who handles cases nationwide. He is the founding partner of Marc Whitehead & Associates, and he has been handling claims for nearly 30 years. He focuses his practice on personal injury litigation, ERISA claims, Social Security Disability law, probate law, commercial litigation, and veterans disability compensation. He can be reached at 888-367-1611.

Letters spell COVE with a seguel head in the lettering

blockchain wifi security

New COVE device uses blockchain tech to create a distributed certificate management system. With no connection to external servers, users surf anonymously.

COVE uses blockchain technology to create a distributed certificate management system.”

— Michael A. Echols – Partner at Cove Security

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, May 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A former Homeland Security Cyber Director Michael Echols and Blockchain developer / Media owner Teemu Airamo, announced the launch of COVE Security — COVE stands for Cyber-Open View Encryption. It is a zero knowledge virtual network security device. When plugged into a power source, COVE hides the data flowing to dangerously unsecure public WiFi networks.

In recent years, the number of data security breaches has soared and cybersecurity experts concede that use of public WiFi is a contributor. Connection in malls, co-working spaces, airports and coffee shops give hackers unauthorized wireless access to the data of unsuspecting WiFi users.

Although VPNs are typically used to protect private web traffic, technology experts have also identified several issues with using VPN products. Among the concerns, VPNs keep logs of their users and reduce network speed by as much as 90%.

COVE provides the protection of traditional VPNs, but has new bleeding edge features.

COVE uses blockchain technology to create a distributed certificate management system.

This means it has no single point of failure. Additionally, COVE never connects to external servers like VPNs do, that gives users the ability to surf anonymously. These features help users to securely access available WiFi networks.

"A company in the same co-working location where we have offices were exposing medical records while using public WiFi. This type of exposure leads to greater intrusion opportunities for hackers, says Teemu Airamo, Partner at COVE Security.

However, it’s not just hackers that web surfers should be worried about — a large number of companies are taking advantage of the new more lenient regulations. There are few consumer protections dissuading their selling of internet user data and browsing history. These business entities are racing to package and deliver information to buyers that may include nation-states.

"We developed COVE to minimize digital risk for all WiFi users. This device will provide security for millions of people across the world,” says COVE Security Partner Michael Echols.

“Our goal is to provide an effective all-in-one solution to guard privacy during those times when a person has to use public WiFi as well as when it is the only option at work. COVE Security devices allow users to surf the web anonymously from any location without leaving any traces of browsing history.” This is a major security advancement,” Airamo concludes.

COVE is being launched as a private beta via its token offering and blockchain authentication services. The company is currently negotiating with government, industry and academic partners.

About Michael Echols:

Michael Echols spent ten years at the Department of Homeland Security. In 2015, Mr. Echols became the White House point person for the rollout of Presidential Executive Order 13691 – Promoting Private Sector Cyber Information Sharing. Most recently Mr. Echols authored five Forbes articles and was featured on a PBS cybersecurity special. Mr. Echols has also led two organizations to CSO50 Award honors for information sharing in the last three years. He is currently on the Health and Human Services CISA Cyber Awareness Task Force.

Mr. Echols also chaired the Communications Sector and the International Network Security Information Exchange (NSIE). Additionally, he managed the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC), 30 Chief Executive Officer level NSTAC members who represent IT, Defense and Communications companies producing communications policy recommendation for the President of the United States.

This last hurdle concerns culture change in portable power that is pioneered by Solar Stik as a market leader in portable hybrid power systems designed for military applications. Gumpf will talk about the integration of intelligent power management, generator auto-start/stop, energy storage, and renewables into efficient power systems that provide the capabilities necessary to sustain Multi-Domain Operations (MDO).

Gumpf has over 25 years of experience with military power and previously served as a Branch Chief for Operational Energy for the Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC). Lachica is an expert on current and future expeditionary power developments in support of DoD operations and also has over 25 years of experience providing tactical, electric power and logistics support to operational military units.

The talk will take place at 12:30 p.m. on May 15.

All Solar Stik Team Members will be available for the duration of the event to discuss Operational Energy solutions that offer significant fuel demand reduction and lessen delivery requirements by over 50%. They are standing by to discuss how a modular and scalable expeditionary power system provides autonomy, continuous operation, and extended operational endurance for your unit. Additionally, the Team is waiting to tailor systems for specific requirements to assist your unit in maintaining MDO with rugged, reliable power.

As Solar Stik says, “Your Mission is your Focus. Providing the Power for it is Ours.”

The Solar Stik Team members will also be demonstrating a 2kW hybrid power system (HPS) that features the company’s latest power management and energy storage modules designed to provide resilient capabilities to small teams conducting dispersed operations in a contested environment. The 2kW HPS includes auto-start/stop integration with the Novatio man-portable generators that operate on JP-8 thus maintaining the single-fuel concept. The hybridized operation enabled by the single-case PRO-Verter S 2000 further reduces sustainment demands by its ability to maximize the power generated from the fuel consumed by the generator. The PRO-Verter S 2000 also has the capability to accept and process solar power allowing for reduced fuel consumption and generator maintenance which in turn increases Soldier lethality. The man-portable Li Expander Pak 1300s included with the 2kW HPS offer the highest energy density of any battery in its class.

Check out the 2kW HPS while learning more about Solar Stik’s system architecture and other expeditionary power and energy solutions in between sessions with the Solar Stik Team.
