Marine Insurance Coverage
Because navigable waters and the vessels traveling them are governed by differing and sometimes conflicting regulations, there are few clear-cut cases. The same is true for marine insurance coverage. Whether you are an insurance broker or vessel owner, we are prepared to evaluate and negotiate your maritime insurance coverage dispute until successful resolution.
Jones Act Liabilities
The Jones Act regulates coastal trade in US waters, with implications for commercial vessels and seamen’s rights among others. We are well equipped to review your case against any applicable Jones Act liabilities in order to protect your interests to the furthest possible extent.
While the concept of salvage is quite simple, salvage contracts, stakeholders, and difficult conditions at the location of the salvage often result in complicated disputes. If you are a vessel owner or other stakeholder looking to recoup your losses in a marine salvage case, we can provide you with our best advice so your case can proceed smoothly and favorably.
Marine Product Liability
In the case of injuries or damage happening on or caused by a marine product (like a commercial or recreational seagoing vessel), the manufacturer’s liability may be limited to a few select scenarios. If you are a manufacturer of maritime products and a liability case was brought against you, we have the expertise to defend you from unfair obligations.
Crew Member Claims
If one of your crew members or other personnel have been injured while carrying out their duties on your behalf and decide to bring civil action against you, we can assist you in evaluating, preparing for, and even preventing costly future claims.
Limitation of Liability
In the case of an accident, the owner of any of the vessels involved can invoke the Limitation of Liability Act in order to protect themselves from excessive liability and financial loss. Let us know if you’d like us to steer your Limitation of Liability case in the right direction.
