Bodily Injury News - May 2012
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.

Recent issues and developments arising from crew injury through falling overboard and parting mooring lines are also reviewed.
