New Jersey Cruise Injury Lawyers.jpgThe cruise injuries lawyers of Brais Law Firm have been retained to represent a New Jersey woman who fractured her ankle while disembarking the Celebrity Cruise ship Constellation. The passenger alleges that while making her way off the cruise ship in Porto, Portugal she slipped and fell on an unmaintained and slippery gangway. Radiological studies taken shortly after the incident revealed the slip and fall caused the passenger to suffer multiple fractures to her left ankle. These fractures required her to undergo an initial open reduction internal fixation surgery and a second surgery to remove the hardware. Maritime law requires cruise lines to provide passengers safe ingress and egress to and from their cruise ships.
