30-year-old Cristina M. was four month pregnant when she survived the sinking of the Costa Concordia on January 13, however she has filed a $1.4 million lawsuit against the owners of the ship alleging her doctors feel she lost the baby because of the intense psychological stress she endured when forced to evacuate the ship at night, and again when the lifeboat she was on smashed into rocks as passengers tried to reach the shore.

Carnival Lines, parent company of Costa Crociere which owned the Costa Concordia is facing a plethora of legal claims, including a $450 million class action lawsuit filed in the United States by six passengers.  

Though nearly 3000 of the 4200 people on board the ship have accepted a deal to receive around $14,000 each in damages plus reimbursement for the cruise and related expenses, numerous passengers in France and Germany have rejected the deal and filed criminal charges against Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino.

32 people are believed to have died when the captain ran the ship into the rocky shoreline of Giglio Island and people were evacuated to the life boats as the ship sunk to its side.
