Ferry Accident Lawyers With More Than 50 Years Of Experience

The most efficient transportation route from New Jersey to the city is through the ferry system, and thousands of New Yorkers trust their safety to the owners and operators of the commercial ferries that transport them back and forth on a daily basis. Some of the most popular ferries in New York include:

  • The Belford Ferry
  • The East River Ferry
  • The Hudson River Ferries
  • The Liberty State Park Water Taxi
  • The New York Water Taxi
  • The Seastreak Wall Street ferry
  • The Staten Island Ferry

If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury in a commercial boating accident, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation through a boating accident claim or lawsuit. Speak with a New York City personal injury attorney at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about your legal options.

Causes Of Ferry Accidents

Several factors can contribute to ferry accidents and several liable parties that can be held responsible for the damages that occurred. Human error, mechanical failure, negligent maintenance, and inadequate training are all shortfalls on the part of the commercial ferry carrier that warrant liability.

Ferry accidents can also result when the operators and employees of the boat neglect their duty to exercise care while doing their job, which puts the passengers at unnecessary risk of danger. Intoxication, distracted operation, and shoddy workmanship are factors that can increase the likelihood of an accident.
