Steven Randall Williams filed a lawsuit Dec. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida Miami Division against Carnival Corporation, alleging failure to provide non-slip mats in the bathrooms of a ship's cabins.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 23, 2015, Williams sustained injuries to his right knee, right quadriceps and ribs from slipping and falling in the bathroom of his cabin aboard the Carnival Ecstasy.
