A Florida woman is suing Norwegian Cruise Line, alleging that the company’s negligence resulted in her falling and injuring herself.

The woman filed suit on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division. She alleges that on December 21st, 2015, as she sailed on the Norwegian Star cruise ship, she slipped on a wet surface and injured her knee.

She also alleges that a crew member, who was close to her when she fell, left the scene and failed to provide her with assistance.

The plaintiff claims that Norwegian failed to notify travelers of the dangerous conditions caused by the wet floor, and failed to remediate the problem. She is suing for damages of over $75,000, medical expenses, legal fees, and other relief.

This is the second such case we have blogged about in just two days. As was stated in yesterday’s blog, such cases are relatively common aboard cruise ships, and shows that cruise companies have a long way to go toward ensuring customer safety.
