USCG-licensed vessel operators, engineers, and crew face an enormous amount of risk rendering their daily professional services or employed duties. While shipping casualties and vessel incidents occur frequently and vary in terms of severity, many officers do not realize the impact of a lawsuit or allegations until it is too late. It is paramount that USCG-licensed vessel operators safeguard themselves from the hardships brought forth by rulings against them due to civil legal liability and damages they may be responsible for. Equally important is protecting their licenses and livelihood from administrative reprimands including defense costs and license suspensions, fines, and income security.
