MIAMI – A cruise ship passenger claims he needed 11 stitches after his cabin door closed on his fingers.
Gerald Lutzker filed a complaint on Feb. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against Royal Caribbean Cruises LTD alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 11, 2016, he suffered physical injuries to his fingers, which needed stitches.
