A Strong Advocate After A Tragedy At Sea

Have you lost a loved one because of a fatal work accident that occurred at sea? If so, you may be entitled to compensation. The Death on the High Seas Act (DOSHA) provides a means of recovery for family members in cases involving fatal maritime injuries. It states: “When the death of an individual is caused by a wrongful act, neglect or default occurring on the high seas beyond 3 nautical miles from the shore of the United States, the personal representative of the decedent may bring a civil action in admiralty against the person or vessel responsible. The action shall be for the exclusive benefit of the decedent’s spouse, parent, child or dependent relative.”
