wrongful death at sea Archives

Boating while intoxicated is widely underestimated

At the Law Offices of Lyle C. Cavin, Jr. & Associates, we understand that working on a sea vessel can be stressful and dangerous. As such, we also know that a ship’s crew may blow off steam by having a few drinks. There is nothing wrong with safely imbibing, but as you know, people may drink and drive, as well as boat and drive. This can present serious safety issues for California mariners.

What’s your legal recourse if your loved one dies at sea?

Your son got married last month. He and his new bride decided to take a cruise to Alaska for their honeymoon. It was their dream vacation. But when the ship hit some unforeseen turbulence, it toppled onto some protruding rocks. Your son did not make it out alive.
