This week, victims of the doomed Costa Concordia Cruise Ship that capsized off the Italian coast in January filed a new Complaint against Miami headquartered Carnival Corp., the builder of the Costa Concordia, for product liability, against Carnival’s Miami-based architect for defective ship design and against Carnival for a pattern and practice of concealing and/or delaying notification of life threatening situations to passengers on board their cruise ships, amongst other causes of action.
The law firm behind the current suit is targeting Carnival for knowingly allowing the Concordia to sail despite known problems with the ship’s design and covers all passengers, not just those hurt by the accident.
