Justice for Captain Hill

Miami maritime attorney Michael T. Moore recently won a $3.2 million verdict for the family of Capt. David Hill, who was lost at sea in June 2010 when the tuna purse seine he was running in the Pacific Ocean, Majestic Blue, had a mechanical failure and sank. Twenty-two other crew safely abandoned ship to a life raft, but Hill remained aboard to send mayday calls and to try to determine the cause of the water ingress. The chief engineer also was onboard and went down with the ship

Capt. Hill left behind a wife and young daughter, and a grown son and daughter from a previous marriage.
