MIAMI – A New York man alleges he was injured on a cruise ship due to an unmarked hole in the floor.

Jeffrey Duff filed a complaint on Nov. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Carnival Corp., doing business as Carnival Cruise Lines, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 27, 2016, he sustained physical injuries when he fell due to an unmarked hole aboard the defendant's vessel. The plaintiff holds Carnival Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn the plaintiff regarding the hole aboard its vessel where a grate had been removed.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for all damages. He is represented by Tonya J. Meister of Meister Law LLC in Miami.
