A Louisiana seaman, Sandrica Garrett, is suing over claims that she was injured in a ship collision in Galveston Bay on March 22.

The collision occurred between a barge (owned by Cleopatra Shipping Agency Ltd.) and 585-foot bulk carrier (owned by Kirby Inland Marine LP). Garret is suing Kirby, her employer, and Cleopatra for negligence. Both companies are accused of failing to supervise their crews.

The collision resulted in a large spill of oil and the barge sinking to the bottom of the channel. The channel was closed for several days because of the spill. This resulted in multiple other lawsuits from commercial fisherman and even between the barge and carrier.

As for Garret’s lawsuit, she claims she sustained injuries to her shoulders, eyes, and back in the collision. She is seeking $1M in damages.
