About Costa Concordia Settlement proposal – WHAT TO DO WITH IT

AND NOW WHAT SHOULD WE DO?!

of course we can not replace the passengers in making a decision, you will certainly have your good reasons to consider convenient or not the acceptance of Costa offer, for a fast and secure compensation.

On the other side we can give you, once again, some tips that may help for a more informed choice:

– The Costa offer is not really limited in time (We would be grateful if this documentation could be returned to us as soon as possible. The intention is to make payments on receipt of fully completed forms with legible ID within 7 days of receipt) , and, as we know from public sources, just a very small percentage of passengers accepted for now (they say from 5 to 10 %);

 – So You could probably hold it for a while more, in order to take eventually advantage of what will happens to those cases already filed in Miami, Chicago and Italy too; consider that, just the day before yesterday, a woman filed a complaint case claim for a 1 million euro, as she interrupted pregnancy 10 days after the shipwreck in relation to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and many are following;

 – We understand that even if You have no injuries but these cases have a very significant impact on public opinion and Costa Cruises will have to seek a general settlement in better terms than the one already offered and yet rejected by the vast majority of passengers, or loss for Costa company’s image could be much greater than the compensation due.

– We believe that, even for You as for those who did not suffered noticeable injuries, the PTSD will be a significant compensation component, not adequately included in the offer of compensation quickly agreed with some consumer groups, which, as immediately accused by their own clients, is being nothing more than a sell out, in order to limit the crime liability of Costa management.

– We estimate that, through a single mediation action, we can get Costa to double the offer, if the majority of passengers will reject the first offer of 11 +3 thousand euros.

– The Mediation process might probably be the key for a fast and better compensation for You, as the the whole procedure is closed within 90 days form filing, and the result is covered by confidentiality clause, so that Costa should not consider the single agreement as a prejudice for other cases.

– Our office is specialized in mediation, and we have been authorized to operate even on ODR as a FULL ONLINE MEDIATION PROCESS, this means extremely fast results, and contained expenses.

– If the Mediation process, and after that, US judges or the Italian ones, fails to give better compensations, then any passenger will be recovered in terms to accept the original offer, or with a simple appeal to the base justice jurisdiction (Giudice di Pace) will get the 14,000 euros without any special effort and really fast terms (3-4 months).

– So we believe it is appropriate to suspend any action within three months after the accident, and in that terms submit a crime lawsuite to those who have suffered more evident injuries, and start the mediation process for all the others

Any expense about the lawsuit and mediation process will be advanced and charged to our office, so you will not be required to advance any money for mediation or other legal action to be taken.

please ask any more information at our office, or email the embarkation tickets, so we can send a registered letter of request for damages, and send back to you all of our questionnaire forms, free of any charge or commitment.

LATELY NEWS

A video, broadcast exclusively by TG5, shows what happened on the bridge of the Costa Concordia after the tragic impact on the Island of Giglio. On the bridge there are several people, different voices, animation but not agitation, while the ship is already inclined by 12 degrees. Everyone talks to everyone, but the commander does not appear to be in command of the situation. IT GIVES A VIDEO PROVE and ‘yellow case’ on a phone call made by Schettino at 22:25 from the bridge of the Costa Concordia. In transmitted images by Tg5, Schettino is on the cell phone, but having already had two telephone conversations with Roberto Ferrarini, operations manager of Costa Cruises, speaks with someone else, still unknown.

Prosecutor: “the Video is a news for us too”: The prosecutor of Grosseto is determined to acquire it. “It an innovative source also for us. I saw it for the first time on tv. We’ve heard and questioned all those who were on the bridge and no one told us about this video,” said prosecutor Francesco Verusio. For days, with his deputies, has been hearing the staff that was on the bridge that night and that video, now, could suggest new questions and to require further clarification about Costa directions to Schettino, and suggest new responsibilities on the significant delay in launching the general emergency alarm.

The magistrates of Grosseto listened for hours, from 10.30 to 17.30 the CEO of Costa Crociere President Gianni Onorato and other officials of the company. Next Tuesday, in all likelihood, should be the turn of the CEO Pierluigi Foschi. Then next week the decision whether to enroll new names under the investigation list, on which for now include only those of Schettino and his deputy Ciro Ambrosio, also in view of the technical examination and evidentiary note on the Concordia black box, date set for March 3.

WE BELIEVE THAT, AS WE SUGGESTED, IN SHORT TERMS THE COSTA CONCORDIA MANAGEMENT WILL BE INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATIONS, AND THIS WILL GIVE NEW STRENGTH TO COMPENSATION DEMANDS.

WE ARE PLANNING TO START THE MEDIATION PROCESS FOR THOSE WHO DID NOT SUFFERED RELEVANT INJURIES AND AN AVERAGE LEVEL OF PTSD, FOR A QUICK AND EFFECTIVE COMPENSATION

AS THE MEDIATION RESULT WILL BE COVERED BY A CLAUSE OF CONFIDENTIALITY, WE BELIEVE COSTA WILL BE VERY WELL AVAILABLE FOR A PRIVATE AND AMICABLE AGREEMENT, GETTING AT LEAST TO DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF THE ORIGINAL OFFER TO ALL THE OTHER PASSENGERS.
