A loss could occur at any time, anywhere in the world, so our global network of specialists, available 24/7, is well-placed to handle any marine claim that occurs.
Hull + machinery
Our dedicated experts bring their seagoing, engineering and shipbuilding experience to bear on behalf of insurers, owners and operators, providing nautical surveys on all types of vessels and floating structures and consulting on land-based equipment.
We regularly investigate and adjust liability claims across the full range of risks insured in the marine market. Our cargo and logistics expertise brings benefits both in terms of more effective loss mitigation as well as careful investigation of the cause of loss and the responsibility for it. Our clients include protection and indemnity (P&I) clubs and fixed-premium insurers of freight-forwarders, truck-operators, warehouse-keepers, ports and terminals and marine trade businesses such as welders, fabricators and repairers.

We also assist clients with marine surveys, insurance-related shipboard inspections and safety audits. Our dedicated surveyors, investigators and adjusters respond quickly and work closely with clients to define goals and address all issues.

Maritime and longshore
Claims involving maritime law are among the most challenging in the workers’ compensation industry. Employers need a partner that understands the unique rules and regulations governing these cases to ensure compliance and avoid fines. Sedgwick’s maritime claims specialists are experts in Jones Act claims investigations for U.S. and international incidents. We also provideclaims administration for cases involving the U.S. Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Act.

They are big and small business owners who need to get things back on track. And they are employees and consumers who need to know that they’re protected. We take care of them when they need it most, helping them get back on their feet, back on the road, back to business as usual — because caring counts.
