The following is a description of the accident in a complaint we recently filed on behalf of JEFFREY WEINGART in his litigation against ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISES LTD.,:
- DESCRIPTION OF THE ACCIDENT. The Voyager of the Seas cruise ship, owned and operated by Royal Caribbean Ltd. (“RCCL”) provides booths for the public in the 19th Hole Lounge. One of those booths, believed to be the second from the right when one walks in the front door of the lounge, was weak in condition and defective, and was not maintained properly by the cruise line. The Plaintiff, JEFFREY WEINGART, sat in the booth, placed an order, and after a brief period of time, the booth collapsed. The Plaintiff did absolutely nothing to cause the collapse. The booth was used in the manner in which, if not for negligent maintenance, it should not have broken.
- The cause of this accident, the booth, and the negligent maintenance of the booth, is not one that would in the ordinary course of events, have occurred without the negligence on the part of the one in control of the booth, that is, the Defendant cruise line.
- The negligent maintenance and defect in the booth caused the crash to the ground. The impact of the crash caused the Plaintiff to suffer severe, debilitating, and permanent injuries requiring surgery.
