The Cost of Not Having Marine License Insurance

Just like operating a vehicle on the road, bodily injury and property damage can occur on the water. This could lead to costly medical expenses and property repairs, as well as potential legal liability if you are named as a defendant in a lawsuit. Regardless of whether or not you were at fault in a water-related incident, accident, or injury, it is likely that the authorities will investigate, which could still require you to defend your decision.

Marine License Insurance can help you to defray these expenses so that you can quickly get back on the water.

Investigations can be both time-consuming and expensive – and could be even more costly if your marine license is suspended or revoked leaving you unable to earn income during the process A Marine License Insurance policy can help you protect your financial security and your career altogether.

Who Needs Marine License Coverage?

Even the most experienced and highly skilled mariner could still find themselves in a situation that requires legal assistance. Just like other licensed professionals - such as doctors, accountants, and attorneys – events can occur that are out of your control. But, while you can’t always prevent accidents or injuries from happening, you can control how much out-of-pocket money it will cost you.

Marine license insurance can provide you with an attorney to help with defending your marine license if an issuing authority questions your ability to hold it. Your attorney representation may also include other services, too, such as accompanying you to depositions and court proceedings and working with you when providing witness statements and/or responding to Letters of Warning notices.

In addition, Marine license insurance policies can also protect you against the loss of income you may incur (for up to a specified period of time) if your marine license becomes suspended or revoked.
