New York ferry crash results in 37 personal injury claims

Posted on Monday, May 27th, 2013 at 4:54 pm    

A total of 37 personal injury claims were filed against ferry commuter service line SeaStreak LLC in the U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey between January and May 23, which was the deadline for claims to be filed, regarding the January 9th crash that injured 83 passengers. Many of them sustained head trauma and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the crash.

According to the Ashbury Park Press, the vessel hit the Pier 11 dock; however, details surrounding the crash are still vague and the National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating the case.

Reports gathered about the accident revealed that the ferry captain lost control of the engines at the time of the crash, a fact that the captain readily admitted.
