Why you should attend:
Maritime accidents and casualties, whether caused by machine failure, explosions, fires, groundings or collisions, happen all too regularly. Handling the situation and tackling the aftermath of incidences can be expensive and surrounded in time-consuming complications. Managing the whole process effectively is so important to ensure that any further complications are avoided.
Managing Maritime Accidents and Casualties fifth annual seminar provides an opportunity, second-to-none, to be fully briefed on accident and casualty management including key elements of the investigation procedure. Through practical workshop sessions and discussion time, speakers will give examples of understanding how to best manage the investigation process, the importance of handling the situation and sharing vital evidence, dealing with claims, technical complications, the law and regulatory framework, following the potential for major disputes and media complications following any disaster.
This year's seminar will cover some of the major cases to-date which have been litigated. Through case studies and workshops, each session will enable participants to glean the very latest techniques in handling and investigating major maritime accidents, and to analyse trends and specific difficult areas which come up time and time again.
