MIAMI — A passenger is suing Carnival Corporation, d/b/a Carnival Cruise Lines, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
Melissa Nini filed a complaint on Dec. 5, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Carnival Corporation, d/b/a Carnival Cruise Lines, alleging that the cruise ship company failed to keep the floor of its vessel free of any foreign substance that might cause an accident.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 12, she suffered physical injuries when she slipped and fell due to a puddle of water on the floor. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corporation, d/b/a Carnival Cruise Lines, responsible because the defendant allegedly allowed a hazardous conditon and failed to provide adequate warning to the plaintiff regarding the puddle.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Thomas Scolaro and Mason Kerns of Leesfield Scolaro, P.A. in Miami.
