Maritime Wrongful Death Verdict
April 02, 2013
Mark Wilner and Susannah Carr, along with co-counsel at Mundt MacGregor, obtain a $3.45 million verdict after a two-week jury trial in federal court. The firm represents the Hawkins family against a Maltese company in a maritime wrongful death and survival action arising out of the death of Lia Hawkins on October 21, 2010. Ms. Hawkins drowned after falling overboard from an unprotected gap on the fourth-level deck of the defendant’s ship–the M/V SAHARA–while moored on the Lake Washington Ship Canal in Ballard.
