Bodily Injury News: Summer 2016 edition
This edition of BI News contains articles on thin skulled plaintiffs; support for injured crew; overseas arbitration clauses; requiring the surrender of US Merchant Mariner’s documents as condition of settlement; and, the impact of Subchapter M on Jones Act Claims. Just as this issue went to print the Club had an outstanding result on a recent case - the Washington State Court confirmed the arbitrator’s decision to enforce the terms of a settlement agreement requiring the plaintiff to surrender his merchant mariner’s credentials & resign from his union for 25 years on the basis of his permanent disabling injury for which he was compensated by our Member. You can read about settlement strategies on page 3 of the latest BI News.
