MIAMI — A former cruise ship passenger is suing Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., claiming he was injured on a waterslide by another rider when the cruise ship was docked and passengers could explore the area.
Mark Pockuba filed a complaint on Aug. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Royal Caribbean Cruises, alleging that the cruise ship company failed to provide adequate supervision for people using the slide.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 25, 2015, he sustained physical injuries when another rider on the slide ran into him. The plaintiff holds Royal Caribbean responsible, because the defendant allegedly failed to control people going down the slide or provide adequate warning to the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages, interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Andrew L. Waks of Waks & Barnett, P.A. in Miami.
