MIAMI – A Norwegian Cruise Line passenger alleges she fell and was injured due to an unsafe gangway on the Norwegian Jade.
Bonnie Radar filed a complaint on Aug. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against NCL (Bahamas) LTD, doing business as Norwegian Cruise Line, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 17, 2015, she sustained serious physical injuries when she fell forward while departing from the ship, injuring the left side of her body. The plaintiff holds NCL (Bahamas) LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain the gangway in a reasonably safe condition, failed to train the crew and failed to safely design the gangway.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, all medical expenses, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Spencer Marc Aronfeld and William D. Minnix of Aronfeld Trial Lawyers in Coral Gables.
