The Cost of Not Having Mariner Liability 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.
Mariner Liability 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 Mariner Liability Insurance policy can help you protect your financial security and your
Who Needs Mariner Liability 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.
Mariner Liability 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, Mariner Liability 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
