Maran (UK) Limited

Leigh Day represents the family of a man who was killed after falling from a great height while working on a vessel previously controlled by Maran (UK) Ltd

International partner Oliver Holland represents the widow of a man who was killed after falling from a great height while working on a vessel previously controlled by Maran (UK) Ltd, the UK company of Greek shipping giant, Angelicoussis Shipping Group.

The claim, brought on behalf of the man's wife and son, is for negligence and breach of common law duty of care.

The claimant argues that Maran is legally liable because the company had a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the end of life sale and disposal of the vessels for demolition would not endanger human health, damage the environment and/or breach international regulations for the protection of human health and the environment.
