The cruise injury lawyers of Brais Brais & Rusak represent a Texas woman who was injured while walking up a staircase to the Serenity deck aboard the Carnival Cruise ship MAGIC. The MAGIC, a 3690 passenger cruise liner, sailed from Galveston, Texas for a 7 day Caribbean cruise. The complaint filed in Federal Court alleges Carnival was negligent for allowing water from the ship’s amusement slip to splash on the deck and stairs and failed to maintain the staircase. The water combined with the cruise line’s failure to maintain the non-skid properties of the steps, the complaint alleges, caused Brais Brais & Rusak’s client to fall. The fall resulted in a fractured femur which required emergency surgery at UTMB in Galveston.
