Calbeck v. Travelers Insurance Co.

No. 532

Argued April 23, 1962

Decided June 4, 1962*

370 U.S. 114


1. Injuries sustained by employees working on new vessels under construction and afloat upon navigable waters are not excluded from the coverage of the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act by § 3(a) thereof, although recovery for such injuries may validly be had under a state workmen's compensation law. Pp. 370 U. S. 115-131.

2. Acceptance by such an employee of payments under a state workmen's compensation law does not constitute an election of the remedy under the state law which precludes recovery under the Longshoremen's Act. Pp. 370 U. S. 131-132.
