While ferry boats and other passenger boats occasionally encounter accidents like this one, it remains to be seen whether negligence or other circumstances played a part. A proper investigation, which seems to be underway already, will shed light on the details.

Injured parties, however, will likely be seeking answers to many questions regarding their legal rights, medical compensation, potential lost time as work and more.
