If you were aboard the Costa Condcordia when it ran aground in Italy, how much would you expect to be compensated? Costa Crociere SpA has announced an offer to some of the traumatized passengers.

FOX News Radio's Alastair Wanklyn has details:

The ship's operator offering just over $14,000 per uninjured survivor, for lost baggage and the trauma of leaping at night from a capsized ship. Plus medical fees and travel.

That agreed today with Italian groups that represent -- they say -- over 3,000 of the 4,200 people aboard the Costa Concordia.

Survivors speak of a chaotic evacuation, and one Italian consumer group says a forthcoming class-action lawsuit against Costa owner Carnival Corp in Miami could secure much more per passenger: perhaps more than a million dollars.
