MIAMI – A Virginia woman alleges she was injured in a fall on a cruise ship because of a wet floor.
Charlotte Mingee filed a complaint on April 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Carnival Corp. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 8, 2016, she slipped and fell due to the wet and slippery floor on the defendant's ship Breeze. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to put up warning signs to warn the plaintiff of the slippery floor and failed to maintain the deck in a reasonably safe condition.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for damages, interest and other relief deemed just and appropriate. She is represented by Jennifer C. Thompson of Waks & Barnett PA in Miami.
