Passenger Sues for Accident in Carnival Cruise Ship Casino

Earlier this year, our firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of a passenger injured in the casino of a Carnival Cruise Ship, the Carnival Miracle.

That lawsuit was reported in the Florida Record — Woman Sues Cruise Line Over Alleged Injury Aboard Ship

Per the lawsuit…

The plaintiff alleges that, on Jan. 18, 2015, she was struck from behind by a poker machine that was being moved by a crew member. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corporation responsible because the defendant’s crew member allegedly failed to properly secure the poker machine to the cart while being transported, allegedly failed to have an assistant to prevent the poker machine from falling off, and allegedly moved the machine at a time when it had to be maneuvered around passengers in the casino.

The plaintiff seeks compensation for all damages allowable by law, prejudgment interest, costs and any further relief that the court may deem just and appropriate. She is represented by Joel M. Barnett of Waks & Barnett, P.A. in Miami.

Accident and injuries caused by negligence are relatively common aboard Carnival Cruise ships. It’s important to know that, if you were injured on a cruise, you do have legal rights and opportunities to file complaints against the cruise line.
