MIAMI — A woman has filed suit against a cruise line after she allegedly slipped and fell in a large puddle of water on the ship's deck.
Mary McGraw filed a complaint Sept. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Carnival Corp. doing business as Carnival Cruise Line, alleging that the cruise ship company failed to clean the puddle of water left by its cleaning machine.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 2, 2015, she suffered physical injuries when she slipped and fell due to a puddle of water on the floor. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corp., doing business as Carnival Cruise Line, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate warning to the plaintiff regarding the hazardous condition of the floor.
The plaintiff seeks economic damages, noneconomic damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by John H. Hickey of Hickey Law Firm PA in Miami.
