    • Inadequate safety procedures
    • Failure of company to obey applicable state and federal regulations
    • Careless operation of a vessel's equipment
    • Onboard vessel defects

    • Past and future pain and suffering
    • Past economic loss including loss of wages
    • Future loss of wages
