Cruise Ship Collides with Cargo Ship

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 14-Jun-2011

A cruise ship carrying more than 100 tourists collided with a cargo ship in a Danube River channel near the capital of Slovakia, reports say.

No injuries were reported, but the German cargo ship, the Bavaria 52, carrying corn, was badly damaged in the collision early Wednesday south of Bratislava, with a massive effort to keep it from sinking.

The 160 passengers were mostly German; the cruise ship, a Maltese vessel named Viktoria, was only slightly damaged. The passengers were evacuated, but the captain was evidently confident the ship could reach the port in Bratislava.

The cause of the collision is still being investigated.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
