Injured Houston Passenger Carnival Triumph Hires BBR


Texas Cruise Injury Lawyer.jpgThe cruise injury lawyers of BBR have been retained by Houston woman who slipped and fell aboard the Carnival Triumph. While on a vacation with her family, the passenger was enjoying the ship's Lido deck which offers pools, music and food. She encountered an unreasonably slippery section while walking across the deck which caused her to fall. The accident most unfortunately resulted in vertebral fractures.

This law firm represents several passengers who slip and fall on Carnival cruise ships' Lido decks. The reason why there are so many accidents on Lido decks is because it is one of the heaviest foot traffic areas aboard ships. Thousands of passengers and crew walk across the Lido deck on any given cruise liner daily which erodes the deck's anti-slip properties. Cruise lines often times decide to keep their ships in operation to generate money as opposed to canceling a cruise or two to properly maintain these decks. This causes slipping hazards. The Triumph sails from Galveston, Texas to Western Caribbean and Mexican ports. If you slipped on the Triumph's Lido deck, we would like to speak with you.

Carnival Cruise Stateroom Stewardess Hires BBR's Lawyers for Wrist Injury


Thailand Crew Injury Lawyer.pngA stateroom stewardess from Thailand has hired the cruise injury lawyers of BBR to represent her in a claim against Carnival Cruise Lines. The crewmember injured her wrist while performing heavy lifting of mattresses and bedding as part of her job duties. Stateroom stewards and stewardesses are required to "turn over" dozens of cabins on embarkation days so the cabins are fresh for the oncoming passengers. Often times the ship is short staffed requiring the attendants to turn over a cabin within minutes and work without breaks so as to reach all rooms. This means the crewmember must lift thousands of pounds in hours. This causes injuries, and in this case, a wrist injury.
