A workers compensation coverage endorsement extending coverage for suits
filed against the value of the ship by an injured crew member seeking for the
recovery of damages. The suit must cite the unseaworthy condition of the vessel
as proximate cause of the damages. In the absence of this endorsement, an in
rem suit could result in an injunction preventing the vessel from leaving port
until the suit is settled. In rem coverage is now part of the maritime coverage
endorsement rather than a separate endorsement.
