The various risks related to voyage including collisions, hull damage, cargo loss, crew injury and many more stimulate shipowners’ and charterers’ concern over protection & indemnity (P&I) for their vessels, crew and voyage. While P&Is could help shipowners and charterers recover some loss across many incidents, it’s impossible to cover everything. In this presentation, Capt. Robert Gordon, marine expert with more than 30 years practicing maritime law will share a comprehensive overview of maritime liabilities and marine insurance. The session will not only explain liabilities and obligations of shipowners, charterers and cargo owners, but also elaboration of salvage costs and general average, loss of income and profits, common policy terms applicable and the risks covered as well as insurance claims settlement.
