Over 50 years combined experience

The Moschetta Law Firm has represented dock workers, stevedores, platform workers, ship builders, ship repair workers, and various other longshoremen across the country. At Moschetta Law Firm, we understand the emotional, mental and financial anguish which can result from a maritime injury. Our maritime lawyers are committed to helping you to recover monetary damages. We take every step necessary to protect your rights and help you recover compensation-from filing the initial claim to asserting your rights through litigation and negotiation.

It is important to note that if you receive Longshore benefits, it does not prohibit you from filing a lawsuit against a third party whose negligence may have contributed to your injuries. We can help you to pursue a lawsuit to recover compensation for full damages, including lost wages and pain and suffering.

Under the Longshore Act, your employer must pay all attorneys' fees incurred while attempting to collect Longshore benefits. Therefore, you have nothing to lose.  So, what are you waiting for. Contact The Moschetta Law Firm, where an experienced maritime injury attorney will help you learn more.
