Each day, thousands of New Yorkers take ferries, including the Staten Island Ferry, to commute or travel through the city. Passengers can easily be injured on these ferries in a variety of ways. Whether the ferry was involved in an accident or the passenger slipped and fell, the ferry company was responsible to ensure the safe travel of all of its passengers. If you have been injured on a ferry, we can help.

At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we are committed to advocating for victims of ferry accidents, recovering maximum damages to cover the medical bills and treatment that the individual has incurred due to the injury. Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the details of your injury and what should have been done to prevent it. This includes looking into all maintenance of the ferry, operator errors, involvement of other vessels, and any other circumstances that may have contributed to the accident.
These can be complex cases, involving not only typical personal injury law, but also issues of maritime law in some cases. Our attorneys will evaluate where the accident occurred and how far from land the ferry was when the injury happened or whether the accident was caused by docking procedures. It is important that you have representation that understands all legal nuances, notice of claims, deadlines, maritime matters, and other issues that may come into play during the case.
