Law firm Ronai & Ronai filed a $400 million compensation lawsuit in New York on Monday on behalf of the family of Sándor Fehér against the owners and operators of the luxury liner Costa Concordia.
Fehér, a violinist employed on the ship, died when the ship ran aground and capsized off the coast of Tuscany on January 13. The lawsuit was filed against Southampton-based Carnival Plc., Florida-based Carnival Corp. and Italian subsidiary Costa Crociere.
Ronai & Ronai represented the families of the two Hungarian youths who died in a “duck boat” accident in Philadelphia harbour in the summer of 2010. They reached a $17 million out-of-court settlement in the case.
