Investigating the Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse in Baltimore

Our firm is investigating the causes behind these regrettable deaths and injuries the Dail, its owner, and its operator caused.

The Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse - What We Know:

Grace Ocean Private Ltd. the owner of the DALI, a 985 ft "mid-sized" container ship, and Synergy Marine Group, the operator of the ship, will likely be facing dozens of lawsuits due to its collision with the Francis Scott Key Bridge. Danish shipping giant Maersk had chartered the vessel for a trip from Baltimore to Sri Lanka.

Baltimore is one of the nation's largest shipping hubs, and incidents of vessels hitting bridges are not uncommon. The Dali was involved in a collision with a quay in Antwerp, Belgium in 2016 and detained while undergoing repairs to its hull.

The ship's owner, leasing companies, and operators will need to compensate victims and the families of victims who were injured or killed. Working in favor of investigators to determine the cause is that the ship is intact and did not sink or was destroyed due to fire. This means that shipping logs, maintenance records, engine inspections, and crew interviews can be carried out to determine what went wrong.
