MIAMI — A passenger is suing Carnival Corp., a cruise ship company, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence.
Cynthia Keene filed a complaint on Oct. 25, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division against Carnival Corp. alleging that the cruise ship company allowed the raised metal threshold to remain on their floor.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on Jan. 1, she sustained physical injuries that needed medical treatment and surgery. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to put adequate warning signs regarding the hazardous condition of the floor to prevent anyone from tripping over the metal threshold.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for all damages. She is represented by Carol L. Finklehoffe, Michael A. Winkleman and Ivan Izquierdo of Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. in Miami.
