Define Death on the High Seas Act

Death on the High Seas Act. A United States law that limits the liability of owners of oceangoing vessels, including cruise ships, in the case of injury or death on those vessels when they are at sea (as opposed to in port).

In context . . .
" A 1920 federal law called the Death on the High Seas Act, which was intended to promote U.S. maritime commerce, has long provided an economic shield for cruise lines by limiting the monetary damages they could face when a death of a non-wage earner such as a child or retiree occurs on a ship, Winkleman said."
