MIAMI – A South African man alleges he injured his shoulder while participating in an activity on the Allure of the Seas cruise ship.
Wade Janion filed a complaint on March 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Royal Caribbean Cruises LTD alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 24, 2015, he suffered a broken collar bone and torn rotator cuff, had to undergo surgery and months of recovery, and eventually developed an addiction to pain medications as a result of having participated in one of defendant's the Flow Rider activity.
The plaintiff holds Royal Caribbean Cruises LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to take reasonable steps to correct or warn plaintiff of the hazards of the activity, failed to adequately train and supervise its personnel responsible for the safety of the participating passengers, and allowed a dangerous condition to exist.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor, for damages, costs, interest, punitive damages and other relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by James M. Walker of Walker & O’Neil PA in South Miami.
