This chapter of Personal Injury: Actions, Defenses, Damages discusses actions based on negligence, by an injured shore worker or the injured shore worker's legal representative, against an employer or third person, as well as defenses to those actions. This chapter also deals with the abolition of an action based on unseaworthiness, the applicability and scope of the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, and the right of a third person to contribution or indemnity from a shore worker's employer.
Personal Injury: Actions, Defenses, Damages (Matthew Bender) is a comprehensive, national encyclopedia of personal injury law. Alphabetically arranged chapters cover over 100 different types of "fact patterns" encountered in personal injury cases. In addition, each chapter provides coverage of potential actions, defenses and damages, as well as forms, such as allegations, sample complaints, checklists, and sample discovery requests.
