You boarded the Seastreak Ferry in New Jersey on January 9, 2013, with thoughts about what your day would be like once you docked in New York City. Those thoughts may have changed significantly if you were one of the dozens of people injured on board the ferry that day. As soon as you were hurt, your thoughts likely turned to your physical recovery. Now, in the weeks that have passed since your injury, your thoughts are most likely focused both on your physical recovery and your financial recovery, especially if you have medical bills to pay, you have lost time from work, or you have suffered a permanent injury.

One of Two Things Likely Caused the New Jersey New York Ferry Accident

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be leading the independent investigation of this New Jersey New York ferry accident. That investigation is already underway, and the ferry’s captain has reportedly testified before the NTSB. Physical evidence such as the data recording feature on the vessel’s engines will be examined, and other relevant testimony will be gathered, before the NTSB makes an official determination as to what caused this maritime accident.

At this time many people, including New York maritime attorney Paul Hofmann, have suggested that the accident was likely due to either human error or mechanical error, with mechanical error being the more likely cause of the accident and resulting injuries.

The cause of this serious ferry accident will be discovered, and the people who have been hurt may be entitled to legal relief for the injuries that they suffered.
