Grenada Cruise Seafarer Injury.gifAfter having a Federal Court declare Carnival's Panamanian choice of law clause within its crew member employment contract unenforceable, the Brais Law Firm brought an arbitration claim on behalf of an injured Grenada seafarer asserting a United States Jones Act claim for negligence. The arbitration claim alleged the crew member injured his knee when he tripped and fell due to an improperly maintained crew stairway and demanded compensation for pain, suffering as well as lost earnings. Shortly after Carnival provided the crew member all necessary medical treatment in Miami, the parties agreed to a confidential settlement.
