Causes Of Ferry Accidents
There are several factors that can contribute to ferry accidents and a number of 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 an unnecessary risk of danger. Intoxication, distracted operation and shoddy workmanship are factors that can increase the likelihood of an accident.
