Entertainers Sue Cruise Ship Owners for US$ 200-million
Attorneys file a lawsuit on behalf of four on-board musician victims of the Costa Concordia shipwreck
A $US200 million ($A199.45 million) lawsuit has been filed in New York federal court on behalf of four Hungarian musicians and dancers aboard the Costa Concordia cruise ship that capsized off the coast of Italy in January, reports Sky News Australia.
The lawsuit filed says the ensemble lost one of their members during the accident. Violinist Sandor Feher drowned while trying to help children put on life jackets.
The lawsuit says the performers are unable to work after suffering physical and emotional injuries.
Another lawsuit filed in Miami is seeking more than $US500 million in damages on behalf of dozens of plaintiffs.
