Following the reasoning in Dutra Group v. Batterton (2019) 139 S.Ct. 2275 and the result in Chan v. Society Expeditions, Inc. (9th Cir. 1994) 39 F.3d 1398, this decision holds that a child cannot recover damages for loss of society of a parent injured (but not killed) on the high seas while not a seaman. Neither the Jones Act nor the Death on the High Seas Act covers such an injury. However, general maritime law now follows federal statutes rather than leading them. As those statutes do not allow loss of society claims, neither does general maritime law, particularly as there is no history of recovery of those damages in maritime cases.
