The DHOSA (Death on the High Seas Act) is an admiralty law that covers wrongful death occurring three or more miles away from the United States shoreline. Unlike other types of wrongful death cases, however, the DHOSA does not provide damages for pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and other non-economic considerations.
