Admiralty / Maritime Experts

The maritime experts at Robson Forensic are frequently retained to investigate collisions, allisions, personal injuries, and other incidents related to commercial shipping and recreational boating.  Robson Forensic maritime and admiralty experts have deep experience in both the engineering and operational aspects of vessels, as well as the safety and regulatory framework affecting the industries that operate on and around the water.

Inland, Coastal, and International Waterways

From international and domestic shipping investigations to recreational boating incidents, and everything in between, rarely is a litigation issue or 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 investigate an incident using reconstruction and other techniques to understand the pertinent hazards, dangerous conditions, causation, notice, and standards of care.  Our work routinely addresses the safety, security, or environmental stewardship elements germane to mariner and boater operational decisions, vessel seaworthiness, longshoremen operations, vessel owner and operator obligations, and much more.

Towing, Fishing, Offshore Energy Industries

Workers in the towing, fishing, and offshore energy industries are exposed to unique and often industry-specific hazards that our maritime experts have likely seen firsthand.  Robson Forensic offers experienced experts in marine operations, marine engineering, and port operations and can address the technical, engineering and operational issues of your case.

What a Proven Forensic Expert Can Do for You

You can trust our experts to address the appropriate standards and to approach your case in a logical, methodical manner. Many of our maritime experts honed their experience and qualifications as Navy, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine officers.

Our experts apply their impeccable training, education and experience to every case - providing detailed and rigorous technical analysis in the determination of how and why the incidents in your case occurred.
