A former passenger with Carnival Cruise Lines is suing the company, alleging that she was injured while on vacation due to the company’s negligence.
On December 27th the plaintiff, Vicki Bush, filed suit against Carnival in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division. Her suit claims that she suffered serious injury after tripping and falling over a doorway on the Carnival Conquest cruise ship, a doorway which was raised several inches above the level of the floor. Bush’s injuries included a shattered right femoral neck.
The suit claims that Carnival failed to maintain safe conditions for passengers, including negligently failing to inspect the area to ensure that passengers had access to safe ingress and egress.
Bush’s suit seeks damages plus interest against the company.
