Introduction

This webinar will provide an introduction to anyone interested in taking on marine related work, which is a discipline steeped in history and involves quite different rules and time limits to other claims, which can catch litigators out if they are not aware of the relevant provisions.

This webinar focuses on work accidents at sea, which invites consideration of the merchant shipping equivalents of the UK Health & Safety statutes and regulations. It will ensure you have a good understanding of the uniqueness of this specialised area of law.

If you are considering taking instructions from clients who have been involved in a marine work accident, this webinar is for you.
