Maritime Accidents



  •         Maritime accidents generally refers to natural disasters and accidents that occur at sea in connection with ships or the operation of ships. These accidents can cause ship grounding, stranding, sinking, collision, fire, explosion, disappearance or loss, etc., resulting in environmental pollution and waterway blockage as well as third-party property losses and personal injury. The handling of maritime accidents includes investigation and collection of evidence to ascertain what happened; recruitment of professional institutions for inspection, appraisal, and evaluation; and negotiation and litigation to address disputes. Our lawyers often participate in investigation, negotiation and litigation relating to maritime accidents on behalf of ship owners, cargo owners, sailors, other parties suffering losses, P&I Clubs, and insurance companies, among others. Procedures related to litigation include preservation of maritime claims (detention of vessels, and seizure of cargo, fuel, etc.), application for detention of vessels, preservation of maritime evidence, injunctions, and establishment of limitation funds for maritime liability claims. Thanks to their extensive professional training and practice, our lawyers can deal skillfully with these complicated procedures, thus recouping considerable losses for our clients.
