In the following passage, shouldn't кораблекрушение be in the genitive case? Or is this a typo?
“Из разговора также совершенно ясно, что вахтенный заметил в свете хвостовых прожекторов человека, потерпевшего кораблекрушение.”
Everything is correct in that sentence, the Accusative case is used correctly. Потерпеть is a transitive word, and its direct object, кораблекрушение is naturally in the Accusative case.
