Ferry Accidents in New York & New York City
Ferries are used to transport people and vehicles on waterways throughout New York. Accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including:
- Operator error
- Excessive speed
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Negligent maintenance
- Overloaded vessel
- Inadequate hiring policies/background checks
- Failure to enforce safety guidelines
Ferry accidents can cause serious, life-threatening injuries such as head injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones. Our attorneys work with ferry accident victims to assess the full extent of damages caused by the accident and to seek fair and just compensation for their losses.
We are prepared to litigate against the city of New York and any other entity responsible for causing our clients harm due to a ferry accident.
In 2003, a Staten Island Ferry accident resulted in the deaths of 11 passengers and life-changing injuries to dozens more. Negligence on the part of the boat operator and the New York City Department of Transportation was found to be the cause of the accident. Personal injury law allowed victims of this accident to obtain compensation for the losses they suffered, whether a serious injury or the loss of a loved one.
