1 Sublimit Applies For All Injured Crew Members, Texas Federal Judge Says
(May 10, 2016, 12:13 PM EDT) -- HOUSTON — A Texas federal judge on May 5 said an insurer is required only to pay the full amount of a sublimit for all of the crew members injured when an insured ship exploded and caused an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico rather than separate sublimits for each of the four crew members injured in the explosion (United Specialty Insurance Co. v. Porto Castelo Inc. et al., No. 15-1036, S.D. Texas; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 59715).
