Is there enough insurance coverage to provide for the families of those that died in a Duck Boat on Table Rock Lake?

By: Frank H. Bailey, Founder/Senior Partner

Ripley Holding company owns Ride The Ducks boat tours, the negligent company that ignored multiple, severe weather warnings and caused 17 people to drown on Table Rock Lake two weeks ago.  Two victims’ family members have filed suit against Ripley seeking $100 million dollars in damages. 

But what about the 15 other victims?  Is the insurance policy large enough to provide for the 15 other victims’ families?  How long do victims have to file their claim?  If one victim files before another, will there be enough money remaining to provide for funeral expenses, debts, or loss of life?

These are the tough questions that victims’ families will soon be asking.  Losing a loved one is the worst event imaginable.  No parent should have to bury a child.  No family should have to worry about how they are going to pay for a loved one’s funeral.

Bailey & Oliver Law Firm has years of experience litigating complex cases and representing families who have suffered personal loss through the negligence of others.
