Bill Introduced to Amend DOHSA

Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Representative Doggett (D-TX) introduced a bill (H.R. 2989) to amend provisions of title 46, United States Code, popularly known as the Death on the High Seas Act, to limit application of those provisions to maritime accidents, and for other purposes. This bill, if adopted into law, would allow recovery of nonpecuniary damages in actions for death from a maritime accident occurring on the high seas beyond 12 nautical miles from the shore of the United States. It would also be made retroactive, so as to apply to a death occurring after August 25, 2005.
