Royal Caribbean Utility Cleaner Injured Aboard the Mariner of the Seas Retains BBR Lawyers
The cruise injury lawyers of BBR were retained by a Royal Caribbean Utility Cleaner to bring a Jones Act Negligence, Unseaworthiness and Failure to Provide Maintenance and Cure claim. The crewmemeber from Honduras was ordered to lift a heavy waste barrel in the Mariner of the Seas’ galley without proper assistance or lifting belt. While attempting to perform this task he sustained a herniated disc requiring decompression surgery. Often times cruise lines overwork utility workers and do not provide proper lifting equipment to safely perform their jobs.
