A CASUALTY? THE NTSB, MARINE BOARD AND THE ALJ

An explanation is provided of the role of various agencies in the investigation of casualties that occur in U.S. waters. The discussion covers the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), including the Marine Accident Reports that are published following its investigations; the Marine Board and the published Coast Guard Marine Casualty Reports that result from its investigations; and the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) who is called into cases involving Federal regulations. Consideration is also given to some shortcomings of the investigatory system.
