Work Accidents At Sea (2nd Edition)

Work Accidents at Sea provides an introduction to the language, law, procedure and practicalities of claims relating to work accidents at sea. It guides personal injury lawyers through the mysteries of the nautical world, the particular regulations and conventions that apply, and the procedures of the Admiralty Court. The work identifies the framework within which these claims are brought, and the common pitfalls that befall the unwary. It is complemented by a full set of the relevant statutory provisions, with identification of further sources of information and research for particular claims.

This second edition brings up to date the provisions under various Merchant Shipping Regulations, and deals with the retention of civil liability under those regulations despite the removal of civil liabilitybin other areas by s.69 of the Eterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013. It also includes further  references to related case law and updates the regulatory context for accidents at sea.

"I spent many years practising maritime law at the Bar and only wish that this book had been available then. I commend it to claimants, lawyers, shipowners, charterers, P&I clubs, underwriters, brokers and indeed anyone who has to deal with accidents at sea."

From the Foreword to this edition by the Master of the Rolls, Sir Anthony Clarke.

Work Accidents at Sea is part of a series of publications by the 9 Gough Chambers Chambers, on all aspects of personal injury and clinical negligence claims.
