As well as specialist topics like non-party subpoenas and maintenance & cure issues, this latest edition reports on the topics and discussions of September’s sell-out Bodily Injury Seminar held at the New Jersey office.
This early summer edition of the Bodily Injury Newsletter places particular emphasis on ‘maintenance and cure’.  The breadth of exposure through this avenue of claim is not widely understood. The seemingly limitless potential for punitive damages where owners fail to pay maintenance and cure, is explored as is the trend towards palliative treatment which raises the prospect of a continued cost for owners. Recent issues and developments arising from crew injury through falling overboard and parting mooring lines are also reviewed.
