February 10, 2012 Cruise Ship Injury & Death

Connecticut Cruise Injury Lawyer.gifThe Brais Law Firm represents a Connecticut cruise ship passenger who slipped and fell aboard the NORWEGIAN PEARL. Court papers filed in Miami Federal Court allege the passenger was walking under the fixed canopy on the pool (Verandah) deck when she slipped and fell on a slippery patch on the deck. The fall caused a knee injury which required an arthroscopic knee surgery. The complaint alleges Norwegian Cruise Lines was negligent by failing to: (1) properly maintain the flooring with appropriate non-skid properties to prevent the fall, (2) place signs warning passengers of the wet and slippery area, (3) install proper lighting so the wet area would be open and obvious to passengers as well as (4) make the area dry and safe after being on notice of the hazard.
