The cruise injury attorneys of Brais Law have been retained to represent a crewmember who suffered a serious neck injury aboard the cruise ship NORWEGIAN PRIDE. In a case file in Miami, Florida, Brais Law alleges ship officers ordered plaintiff, a female security guard from Texas, to secure deckchairs on the top deck while the ship was experience gale force winds. The lawsuit alleges the winds were so severe that the crewmember was latterly blown over and landed on her neck. Cruise lines have a duty to not order crew to work in unsafe conditions if the task could have been performed before the weather became too harsh or if the job ordered to perform was not essentially necessary for the ship’s operation.
