MIAMI — A passenger is suing NCL (Bahamas) Ltd., d/b/a Norwegian Cruise Line, a cruise ship company, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
Vincent Libero filed a complaint on Oct. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division against the defendant, alleging that the cruise ship company failed to properly maintain a chair aboard its vessel.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 6, 2015, he sustained physical injuries when a chair he sat on collapsed. The plaintiff holds NCL (Bahamas) Ltd., d/b/a Norwegian Cruise Line, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly secure the chair on its vessel or provide adequate warning to the plaintiff regarding the hazardous condition of the chair.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for damages. He is represented by Peter Hunt of Labovick Law Group in Palm Beach Gardens.
