MIAMI – A Pennsylvania woman alleges she injured her leg in a fall on a cruise ship.

Dawn Scaccetti filed a complaint on Sept. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against NCL (Bahamas) LTD, doing business as Norwegian Cruise Line, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 2 she sustained physical injuries when she slipped and fell due to a wet spot on a staircase on the vessel the Norwegian Star. She alleges the fall fractured and dislocated her leg and ankle. The plaintiff holds NCL (Bahamas) LTD responsible because the defendant's stairs were allegedly not uniform in their geometry, the landings were not slip-resistant and did not pose warnings of the stairway's hazardous conditions.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Michael D. Eriksen of Eriksen Law Firm in West Palm Beach.
