FERRY ACCIDENT ATTORNEY NEW YORK CITY

Ferry Accidents

Our ferry accident attorneys in New York City fight for the rights of individuals injured in ferry collisions. Like any other vehicle, ferries are capable of crashing and causing serious injuries to their passengers. Individuals who have been in a ferry crash may suffer debilitating injuries, such as broken bones, amputations, severe head trauma and, in some cases, death. In addition to physical harm, passengers who have been injured in a ferry accident may also suffer financial strain due to lost wages and excessive medical bills. While the aforementioned hardships can be devastating, individuals who have endured them may be able to recoup compensation for any damages suffered due to the accident.

Individuals who have suffered an injury in a ferry accident shouldn't hesitate to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury lawyer. At Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP, our ferry accident attorneys understand the toll that can be placed on victims of ferry incidents. As a result, we are committed to helping individuals who have been unnecessarily injured in ferry accidents recover the compensation they may be entitled to.

Do I Have A Valid Ferry Injury Lawsuit?

In order to have a valid ferry accident lawsuit, individuals who have been injured in a ferry incident must be able to prove that the ferry operator or ferry company acted negligently. To prove negligence, the plaintiff must show that a duty of care was broken by the ferry operator or company. A duty of care is a legal obligation an individual or entity has to act in with a certain degree of care when performing potentially dangerous actions. Ferry operators are responsible for operating the vessel in a safe and responsible manner. When a ferry operator fails to act responsibly, them and the company they represent may be found liable for any accident that occurs.

While a breach of duty is necessary for victims to have a valid lawsuit, it is not the only criteria. A victim must also be able to prove that the operator or ferry company's negligence was directly responsible for both the accident and the victim’s injury. Furthermore, victims must have suffered damages from the accident to have a valid claim. An accident or injury is not grounds for a lawsuit without economic or non-economic damages.

The following may be grounds for our ferry accident attorneys in New York City to bring forth a claim:

  • Operating the ferry at excessive speed
  • Operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Improper maintenance
  • Equipment failure
  • Operator lacks requisite experience
  • Operator negligence

Why Hire A New York City Ferry Accident Attorney?

Individuals who have suffered an injury in a ferry accident may be able to receive compensation for any economic or non-economic damages caused by their injuries. Economic damages are any monetary losses the victim suffers because of the injury. Lost wages due to time missed at work and medical bills not covered by insurance are considered economic damages. Long-term pain or suffering and loss of life's enjoyment are considered non-economic damages. Our New York City ferry accident attorneys understand what damages victims of ferry accidents may be able to collect. We use our skill at evaluating our clients' claims to pursue maximum compensation.
