$9.5 Million Awarded in Cruise Ship Slip-and-Fall

Published January 15, 2010 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

Miami-Dade Circuit Court jury has awarded a British fitness instructor $9.5 million for injuries suffered when he slipped and fell on the wet floor of a spa on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Crown reports the Miami Herald.

The 42-year-old man alleged he sustained a back injury in the 2006 fall and as a result became incontinent and impotent. The jury award will cover damages for economic losses, medical expenses, and past and future pain and suffering.

The defendant who is the operator of the spa strongly believes it is not responsible for the injuries and has filed papers seeking a new trial or a reduction of the jury award. The Miami based Norwegian Cruise Line settled out of court earlier.

Premises liability is one of the fastest growing segments of personal injury claims for both residential and business owners. Experience counts. If you have fallen and been injured contact Scott C.
