Marine Accident Investigations

Marine Accident Investigations

Marine accidents although highly undesirable do occur and arise from equipment failure, the human element, or an unforeseeable (or a combination of) events usually beyond our control. An accident investigation involves an in-depth examination of the pertinent factors, actors and circumstances, the collection and recording of evidence, synthesis and analysis of the findings, and finally the verdict which determines of the fundamental causes which led to the event. Accidents often take the form of a collision, an onboard fire, grounding, capsizing, etc. Establishing the root causes of the accident remain the major goal of the investigator. Typically the investigation commences with an on-side autopsy, interviews with involved parties, the collection and documentation of material (samples), and modelling of the event.  

Tropida Marine acts as an independent investigator whose primary concern is to uncover the true causes of an accident. All accident investigations are analysed in the context of the environmental conditions and in light of existing national, EU, and international regulations and practices. If asked we can estimate the monetary value to the accident. Where a casualty is involved we follow the recommended national and international guidelines. For all the investigations Tropida Marine issues a written report stating our findings.
