- A former cruise ship passenger is suing Carnival Cruise Lines, following a January 2016 slip-and-fall.
- The plaintiff suffered serious personal injury after falling on the lido deck of the Carnival Valor.
- The plaintiff’s suit seeks damages, interest, legal fees, and any additional relief provided by the court.
A former cruise ship passenger recently filed suit against Carnival Cruise Lines, alleging that he was harmed due to the company’s negligence.
The plaintiff, Heriberto Morales, sailed on the Carnival Victory cruise ship in early 2016. On January 2, 2016, while enjoying the ship’s pool area, Morales slipped and fell on the lido deck, suffering personal injury.
According to a lawsuit, which Morales filed on January 3rd, 2017, Carnival was negligent because the company failed to exercise reasonable care, and failed to warn passengers of the slippery conditions of the lido deck.
Carnival has been sued countless times over the years as a result of passengers’ injuries resulting from pool area slip-and-falls. At least some of these falls have been traced to the company’s use of unreasonably slippery flooring in the pool areas.
Morales’ suit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division, seeks damages, interest, legal fees, and any additional relief provided by the court.
