New York City Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer
Tragically, the Costa Concordia cruise ship accident forced the issue of maritime law into the worldwide spotlight in early 2012. When the cruise ship ran aground off the coast of the Italian island of Giglio, killing at least 16 of the more than 4,200 passengers aboard and injuring hundreds more, people were confronted with horrifying images and news stories regarding the rights of passengers and the responsibilities of cruise ship companies. In the chaos surrounding the shipwreck, more questions seem to have been raised about maritime law than answers provided.
Fortunately, New York personal injury attorney Mitchell Proner has the expertise, experience, and legal skill to guide victims of cruise ship accidents through the often confusing legal system in their time of greatest need.

His level-headed legal counsel and undying commitment to protecting the rights of injury victims and their families have shone brightly during this dark period in nautical history.

The Costa Concordia Disaster
As a passenger on a commercial cruise ship, you naturally expect that your safety will be guarded by the latest technology and the most highly trained and prepared captain and crew possible. The Costa Concordia shipwreck is a tragic example of an accident that should have been easily avoided in 2012. Despite the claims of Costa Cruise Lines that the accident was solely the fault of a negligent captain, Francesco Schettino, complex questions have been raised as to how a ship could possibly run aground in the age of radar technology, electronic course setting, and other advanced measures to ensure the safety of a ship’s occupants.
Attorney Mitchell Proner is at the heart of the investigations into the horrific incident, leading the charge against any and all parties who share blame for the serious injuries and deaths that occurred. These parties may include not only the ship’s captain and crew, but also the ship’s operator, Costa Cruise Lines, and its parent company, Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines.
