The cruise injury attorneys of BBR have been retained by a Louisiana woman who was injured in a trip and fall accident aboard the Carnival cruise ship Elation. The passenger’s foot became stuck in a poorly lit and maintained stairwell between the Lido and Serenity Decks causing her to fall while the ship was returning to New Orleans. Unfortunately, the fall resulted in a fracture to the passenger’s tailbone (Coccyx). Such injuries are extremely painful. Cruise lines such as Carnival owe their passengers the duty of reasonable care for their safety. The legal duty requires that stair ways be properly maintained and lit so to lessen the likelihood of passengers tripping and sustaining injuries.
Cruise injury lawyers Richard Rusak and Keith Brais have been retained to represent a little girl who was burned in a hot tub aboard the Carnival cruise ship ELATION. Facts known to date are that the girl was bathing in one of the cruise ship’s hot tubs. Unfortunately, the heating element was not properly shielded and burnt the girl’s leg leaving a permanent scar. If you or someone you know suffered a burn in a hot tub aboard the Carnival ELATION or any other Carnival cruise ship, we are interested in speaking with you in order to better investigate the case and better assist our client.
The cruise injury lawyers of Brais & Brais filed suit against Carnival Cruises on behalf of a Louisiana passenger for damages concerning a personal injury. The complaint filed in Miami federal court alleges the passenger was exiting a public restroom when a faulty hydraulic door closer caused the door to slam at a high rate of speed thereby shoving the 51 year old cruise passenger into a wall. From the incident, the passenger claims to have suffered a head, neck and shoulder injury. The accident occurred aboard the CARNIVAL ECSTASY during a Caribbean cruise leaving from Galveston, Texas.
