Brown Water, Blue Water & Shoreside Operations

From commercial shipping to recreational boating and everything in between, the maritime industry is multi-faceted and diverse. Rarely, is a litigation issue or an insurance claim straightforward. Each matter has a myriad of interested parties and contributing factors, any of which may run central to a dispute.

Robson Forensic’s maritime experts can address the appropriate safety standards from bow to stern, analyze causation in cases involving mechanical or electrical systems failure, as well as rules and regulations affecting navigation and longshore operations.

Transportation events are the leading cause of fatalities, followed by machinery incidents, fires and explosions, and chemical exposures.
