Carnival Employee Pushes Passenger Down Stairs
A vacationer is now seeking justice after a terrible accident onboard a cruise ship. The man says that a Carnival employee began pulling him to another room so violently that the man tripped and fell down a flight of stairs.
Cruise ship companies have a legal obligation to you, the passenger. In fact, federal maritime requires the company to give aid. However, each claim is different. But what remains the same is every ship must be clear of any slip, fall, and trip dangers. Plus, a ship must commit to the quality maintenance of the equipment aboard. This is reasonable care.
Carnival Employee Hurts Passenger
In February 2018 just after boarding, a passenger says a Carnival employee caused him grave injury. While on the Carnival Inspiration, the cruise passenger was walking with his companion when an employee approached him. The steward became pulling the man forcefully to the correct muster station. The force caused the man to slip and fall down some stairs. The fall now has led the man to have spinal injuries that now will affect him for the rest of his life.
Now, the passenger seeks justice for his injuries. If it wasn’t for the employee, the man insists that he wouldn’t be suffering. Thus far, the court has agreed. It struck affirmative defenses in favor of the passenger.
