Our cruise injury lawyers have been retained to assist an injured Texas passenger in a claim against a cruise line. In a lawsuit filed in Federal Court, the passenger alleges he was injured when he slipped and fell on the lido deck. The slip and fall resulted in an alleged shoulder injury. Cruise lines are obligated under the law to provide a reasonably safe cruise ship for their passengers. This does not only mean cleaning transitory dangerous conditions like water or food from the deck, but also maintaining the deck’s anti-skid properties so a passenger could be reasonably safe when walking across a wet deck. It is our experience that cruise ship decks, especially decks that receive heavy foot traffic like lido decks, are often times worn from use. The complaint alleges the cruise line fell below the reasonably safe standard for maintaining its decks. If you, or if you know of anyone who, slipped on a lido deck, we would like to talk to you so we could better assist our client.
