Cruise injury attorneys Richard Rusak and Keith Brais recently brought a lawsuit against Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) on behalf of an injured New York woman. Court papers reveal the woman was walking back to her cabin when she tripped and fell over a vacuum cord slung ankle high across the passageway. The accident unfortunately resulted in a fractured humerus near the passenger’s shoulder. Given the similar color of the cord and the carpeting together with NCL’s failure to post any warning signs, the passenger did not see the hazard. It was learned the cruise ship’s stewards cleaning nearby cabins slung the cord across the passageway because the circuit breaker would trip when they plugged the vacuum into the side of the ship where they were cleaning. The accident occurred aboard the NORWEGIAN JEWEL which left from New York City bound for the Caribbean.
