January 12 has been set as the date to try to settle the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge lawsuit. Three groups are involved in this lawsuit, including BellSouth Telecommunications, Foss Maritime Company and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
The lawsuit originated in January 2012 when the ship Delta Mariner crashed into the ferry bridge in Aurora, Kentucky, causing much of the bridge to collapse. Kentucky claims that the crew ignored directions from the U.S. Coast Guard, which had told the ship about the absence of navigation lights at the bridge.
Fortunately, there were no injuries in this particular maritime incident, but the next ferry bridge accident could play out very differently. If you have been injured on the water, then you may be eligible for compensation to help you through your injuries.
