Complex pleasure craft claim

We acted for a pleasure craft insurer in relation to an accident where five of the six passengers of a ski boat were injured. We thoroughly investigated policy coverage issues including overloading of the vessel and use of an inboard engine rated higher than recommended by the vessel manufacturer. We successfully settled all claims without litigation being commenced.
