Paul Hofmann was interviewed on NBC news regarding the Seastreak Ferry accident which occurred on January 9, 2012. The 8:00am Seastreak Ferry from Atlantic Highlands, NJ to Pier 11 at the New York Seaport crashed into the pier at approximately 8:45am. According to clients that the Law Firm of Hofmann & Schweitzer represent, passengers and their belongings were scattered all over the deck. Passengers had fallen over other passengers especially those passengers forward getting ready to disembark. The Ferry, which did not appear to lose power, just kept moving toward the dock. Paul Hofmann stated in his interview that it appeared to him that there was some sort of mechanical failure on the boat. A part of the boats hull had been ripped open when it struck the dock.  Many passengers were taken to local hospitals by ambulance with some apparently critically injured.
