A Mexican pilot has retained the injury lawyers of Brais Law Firm to represent him in a lawsuit against luxury cruise company Silversea. While attempting to gain access to the Silver Spirit, the Jacob’s Ladder lowered by the cruise ship collapsed causing the pilot to fall off the ship. The incident resulted in multiple fractures and a punctured lung. Cruise lines owe pilots the legal duty to provide a reasonably safe means to enter the ship and to properly secure ladders. In a lawsuit filed in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the pilot alleges Silversea breached its legal duty to him and that negligence caused his injuries.
