USL&H coverage is meant to provide workers compensation coverage to “maritime employees.” Loosely, and in short, this coverage is mandated for employees that work “on, above, near or around water.” In some cases, even nonmaritime contractors need this coverage.

In order to qualify for coverage under the USL&H, two criteria must be met. First, the injured worker must be a maritime employee, as defined under the USL&H. Second, the injury must occur at a location under the jurisdiction of the USL&H.

The benefits provided by the USL&H are based on wage loss and the worker’s post-injury earning capacity. Under this federal system, the benefits tend to be more lucrative than scheduled state benefits.

An injured worker who has an option of filing under state or federal laws may be more inclined to pursue federal remedies. In some instances, such as cases arising in California, workers can pursue both state and federal remedies concurrently.
