Item description for The Longshore Textbook by Steven M. Birnbaum...

Extensively revised and rewritten, this text is a must for any attorney involved with Longshore and Harbor Workers' compensation claims.

The fifth edition of The Longshore Textbook is packed with up-to-date analyses of current court decisions and expanded with new and revised chapters, making it a must for your reference library. Long recognized as "the single source" reference guide for attorneys, adjusters, physicians, vocational counselors, and insurance professionals, the fifth edition is the most complete publication of its kind.

Experts in law, medicine and administration present an easy-to-read explanation of the Longshore Act. You will appreciate the clear concise manner in which the Act is evaluated and examined, supplying you with careful presentations of court decisions affecting its application. Legal decisions, statutes and regulations are liberally cited throughout. Its treatment includes issues such as disability, occupational disease, coverage, benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and administrative procedures. Practical questions are also addressed: file administration, administrative procedures, and handling appeals before the Benefits Review Board.

Supplementing the substantive materials are the texts of the Longshore Act, the applicable portions of the Code of Federal Regulations, interest and benefit tables, samples of commonly used forms, and a current directory of Department of Labor Longshore offices.

Thousands of professionals use the previous editions of The Longshore Textbook. The fifth edition, the most complete single source publication yet, should be part of your professional library.
