A Florida man who was injured while vacationing aboard a luxury liner has retained BBR’s lawyers to bring a claim against a Miami based cruise line. The Florida passenger tripped over a vacuum cord that a cabin steward negligent slung at ankle height across a corridor. From this accident, BBR’s client fractured his patella requiring extensive medical care. Cruise lines owe passengers the duty of providing a reasonably safe cruise ship. It is claimed that cruise line breached this duty when an employee caused a tripping hazard by slinging a vacuum cord across the hallway and not simply plugging the vacuum in the stateroom he was cleaning at the time.
