$500,000 Settlement for Victim of Sexual Assault
New York personal injury lawyer Joseph Sullivan recently obtained a $500,000 settlement, with the assistance of a Florida law firm, for a client who was the victim of a sexual assault by an employee of a major cruise line. The incident occurred while the ship was in port in a foreign country. The cruise line immediately began taking statements from the victims and employees involved and attempted to thwart any attempt to have the incident investigated by the foreign authorities. Immediate intervention by Sullivan & Brill, involving the FBI, local Florida police and authorities from the foreign country, resulted in a police investigation that was critical to the success of the case. Ultimately, the employee involved was tracked down and deposed in Costa Rica. His testimony was integral to the settlement of the case.
