Georgia Couple Sues Norwegian After 2016 Slip-and-Fall Injury

Proudly Representing Cruise Ship Cases in Miami, Nearby Areas of Florida and Nationwide

  • A Georgia couple is suing Norwegian Cruise lines, claiming negligence.
  • The plaintiffs claim that the wife suffered physical injuries after tripping and falling over a raised walkway on a Norwegian cruise ship.
  • The lawsuit was filed late last year in U.S. District Court in Miami.

A married couple, who had been passengers on a Norwegian Cruise Lines vacation last year, recently sued the company. The husband and wife plaintiffs claim that the wife was injured as a result of Norwegian’s negligence.

Georgia residents Brenda Allen and Donald Allen Sr. are suing the Norwegian as a result of injuries Brenda suffered while a passenger on the Norwegian Pride of America cruise ship. The couple claims that in May 2016 Brenda Allen was injured after tripping on a raised edge of a pedestrian walkway on the cruise ship.

The suit asserts that the raised edge of the walkway was difficult to see because it was the same color as the floor. The lawsuit claims Norwegians is responsible, as it did not adequately warn passengers of the hazards posed by the raised edge, or remediate the problem.

The complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on December 30, accuses Norwegian of negligence and seeks damages against the company.
