Aftermath of the "New York Incident" - Compensation & Official Reports


Mar 25, 2019
Glasgow, Scotland
Firstly, one or two of the newspapers reported that there were some injuries when the ropes violently snapped aboard the New York whilst people stood on her decks watching the Titanic's departure.

Did anyone who was aboard the New York that day subsequently pursue any claims (successful or unsuccessful) for injury compensation or did the newspapers then as they do now, simply exaggerate with their reports of injuries ?

Secondly, in the days following, did the Southampton port authorities have to make an official report into this alarming near collision ? Or with the Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic and nearly 1500 people dying in horrific circumstances - was it thought better just to let the matter drop ?

Thank You.
