Fires Aboard Vessels

From the earliest days of shipping and exploration, fires aboard a ship have been one of the most serious and deadly situations a sailor or seaman can face. Negligent engine or compressor maintenance, careless storage and disposal of flammable substances, failure to enforce smoking bans on oil and gas platforms, faulty fire suppression equipment; these acts may be considered negligence and vehicle owners and operators may be held liable to pay compensation to those who suffered burn injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one as a result.

Electrical Burns and Fatal Electrocutions

Carelessness with electrical wiring and equipment aboard any floating vessel is a recipe for disaster. Any standing water or wet surface can act as a conductor. On a ship, boat or other vessels, an electrical short or improperly grounded connection can cause severe electrical burns and fatal electrocution to any crewmen nearby.

Electrical arcing can also ignite fuel or other flammable substances. Ship owners and operators are required to follow strict maintenance and inspection protocols. When they fail to do so and a serious or fatal injury results, they may be held responsible.
