Collision Between Dominic S and Marilyn M

by | Feb 24, 2022 | Maritime Law, Personal Injury

There was a vessel collision between two offshore supply vessels in the early morning of February 23, 2022.  The two boats involved were the Dominic S and the Marilyn M.  Reports indicate there were concerns regarding fog in the area at the time of the collision.  The Dominic S is a platform supply vessel operated by REC Marine Logistics and owned by REC Boats LLC.   The Marilyn M is a crew/supply vessel owned and operated by Offshore Oil Services Inc.

Our firm has previously represented individuals who were injured during accidents on the Dominic S.  We also have experience in lawsuits arising out of incidents involving vessels owned by Offshore Oil Services.

There have been a number of recent incidents involving vessels.  On February 6, 2022, the Captain on the shrimp boat LADY NORA fell overboard after slipping on the vessel.  There was a deadly recreational boating accident on February 13, 2022, in Lower St. Martin Parish, Louisiana.  The Spanish fishing boat VILLA DE PITANXO sank off the coast of Newfoundland on February 15, 2022.  There was a fire on the cargo ship FELICITY ACE on February 16, 2022.

Safe maritime companies must perform regular maintenance and inspections in order to ensure the safety of their crew members, but also pilots who may be boarding the vessel.  When ship operators fail to conduct regular maintenance and inspection of the equipment on their vessels, dangerous incidents can result.  This not only puts the lives of hardworking seaman at risk, but can also endanger pilots who are required to board the vessel.
