What is the Death on the High Seas Act?

At Tabak Mellusi & Shisha LLP, we know that ship environments can be dangerous even in the best weather conditions. If you have lost a loved one as the result of an accident on a ship, then you may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the responsible party under the Death on the High Seas Act. According to Cornell University Law School’s Public Information Institute, the act is in effect if the fatal accident happened at sea and the distance from the accident to a U.S. shore was more than three nautical miles.

Shipyards can be toxic workplaces

When people in New York think about jobs in the shipping industry, they imagine people working on a ship. However, there are many other types of occupations and some of them involve a shipyard. The National Institutes of Health point out that a shipyard is not just a place where ships are assembled. It’s also where ships are taken when they are in need of maintenance, disassembly, cleaned or need something repaired.
