The cruise line may be protected under the Death on the High Seas Act, which limits payouts for survivors to “pecuniary” damages such as how much the deceased contributed through wages or housework.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
