Episode Notes

Before The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, policy covered those working on land and those working within navigable waters, but neglected workers on the harbor. This left harbor workers with nowhere to turn but litigation when they were injured on the job. On this edition of Workers’ Comp Matters your host Attorney Alan Pierce has invited Steven M. Birnbaum to discuss The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, The Defense Base Act, and coverage for workers on the harbor.

  • Steven M. Birnbaum, Esq. started his private practice in 1983 specializing in workers’ compensation under The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the California Labor Code. He is a certified specialist in workers’ compensation by State Bar of California and a certified specialist in Admiralty and Maritime Law by State Bar of California. Birnbaum is a frequent lecturer on the topic of workers’ compensation and The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.

Listen to the interview as two workers’ compensation specialists discuss coverage for those working on and along the water.
