Texas resident Norma Herrera filed a lawsuit on Monday, December 28 against Doral, Florida-based Carnival Cruise Line in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas, claiming that the negligence of the cruise staff directly caused her fall and the subsequent injuries she sustained on Dec. 29, 2013.
According to the legal complaint, Herrera was exiting a bathroom on the Carnival Magic, a Dream-class cruise ship, when she slipped on a puddle of water on the deck and fell to the floor. Herrera said the positioning of the dangerous water, plus the fact that the cruise ship’s crew should have been aware of the issue and taken the proper precautions, contributed to the fall that resulted in injuries to her head, ankle, leg, and shoulder.
