My name is Jay Lawrence Friedheim. I am a lawyer who specializes in Admiralty and Maritime claims in Honolulu, Hawaii. I also do a specialized kind of worker’s compensation that is handled through the Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP). The workers for whom I perform legal services are primarily stevedores, ship repairers, and maritime workers who perform their jobs on the waterfront. People covered by the Non-appropriated Funds Act (NAF) are also handled through the OWCP.
In addition, the OWCP covers Defense Base workers under the Defense Base Act, who are civilian employees who work for military contractors in foreign countries. For example, people who work for companies including Haliburton, Raytheon, Bechtel, and other civilian companies which perform military contracts on bases around the world.
If you are injured while doing contract work on an American military base anywhere in the world, your injuries may be covered under the Defense Base Act. The law office of Jay Friedheim has expertise in securing your rights, and obtaining medical care and financial compensation for your injuries.
You may also have rights if you sustain a personal injury as a result of a Maritime accident. No matter where you live in the world, if your accident occurred in Honolulu or on a vessel near Honolulu, the law office of Jay Friedheim is available to help you with your legal questions and your case.
