MIAMI — A passenger is suing Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., a cruise ship company, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
Zygmunt Brett filed a complaint on Jan. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., alleging that the cruise ship company allowed their passengers to participate in using a dangerous attraction aboard its vessel.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in July 18, 2016, he suffered physical injuries from using a modified FlowRider Surfing Simulator aboard the vessel. The plaintiff holds Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. responsible because the defendant allegedly modified the attraction in a way that made it more dangerous and didn't provide proper warnings.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages. He is represented by Michael A. Winkleman and Peter J. Ridge of Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. in Miami.
