Схема обмана судовладельцами вдов

В своей прошлой статье я коснулся темы статистических данных смертности в море и обратил внимание на то, что многие моряки умирают уже на берегу в течение нескольких дней после прибытия домой. 

Сейчас хочу поделиться тем, как судовладельцы убеждают вдов моряков отказаться от всех претензий за символический откуп или вообще за полный отказ в выплате компенсации.

A compromise compensation in a no-win case

Another example of a no-win case resulting in a compromised compensation in the amount of $30 000. Why have I called the case no-win? Because the seafarer is 60 years old, his disease is an insult, and besides he is involved in not the best club of the social security and insurance.   He even didn’t account for the compensation at all, and his only wish was his expenses for treatment to be compensated. The seafarer was signed off from the vessel HANSA FLENSBURG by the health condition and was sent to Ukraine to be treated by the place of his residence.

Arrest of the vessel BBC CITRINE

A seafarer from Mariupol applied to us for consultation as for compensation due to spine injury which occurred aboard the vessel BBC CITRINE.

The seafarer was signed off the vessel due to the spine injury and was delivered to the hospital; afterwards it was made the decision about his repatriation to Ukraine for further medical treatment.

Notwithstanding the grave nature and the consequences of the injury, the ship owner confined himself only to the sick leave for several months coverage. The seafarer was refused in compensation.

Why it’s impossible to win all the cases

Not many marine lawyers can admit or publish officially the case, in which they failed to provide efficient legal aid. Usually such information is kept and not officered. And it’s completely right. Why one should spoil his reputation? But I’ll disclose you a secret: everyone has such cases, and I am not an exception.

Despite the fact that the percentage of victories is rather substantial, there are still the cases when you practically have no chance to win. Moreover, sometimes I deliberately take no-win cases on in order at least try or just to make an attempt to help my client. And I’d rather told that sometimes even no-win cases are possible to be brought up to the logical end, and it’s possible to achieve fair or compromise compensation payment.
