Global Marine Claims

We live in a globalized economy and no sector is more impacted by events around the world than the maritime industry. Marine claims are often extremely complex and require the appropriate team of experts so that losses can be mitigated as quickly as possible. Since 1984, the forensic engineers and experts at Envista have assisted claims adjusters, legal professionals, risk managers, and brokers with claims related to ocean marine losses.

When something unexpected occurs, like a vessel sinking, vessel allision or collision, cargo loss, or critical structural failure, you need to mobilize with the right team so that risks can be minimized, and the necessary questions answered. Envista's Marine Practice Group specializes in leading complex investigations following severe marine incidents and accidents. From ocean-going blue water vessels to brown water vessels on the nation's inland waterways and recreational vessels and yachts, Envista has a team of marine experts to assist.
