Norwegian Cruise Line gets $2.8M personal injury claim trimmed down to less than $10,000

Bermuda-incorporated, Miami, Florida-based Norwegian Cruise Line on Tuesday, July 20 managed to trim down the $2.8 million personal injury claim that a Dawn-class cruise ship Norwegian Star passenger, Samira Jaber, lodged against it, to less than $10,000. They casting doubt on the medical testimony given by neuropsychologist Jorge Herrera, the medical expert who backed Jaber’s claims that the January 2013 accident in the cruise ship caused her to sustain persistent headaches, ringing in the ears, and memory loss.

After United States District Judge James Lawrence King in Miami reviewed the facts, he decided that Jaber’s CT scan, which was done at a hospital in Cozumel, Mexico during the cruise verified that she did not suffer from traumatic brain injury.

In addition, Jerry Hamilton, Norwegian Cruise Line’s legal counsel, was able to prove that Herrera only examined limited records that Jaber’s lawyers gave. Herrera also admitted that even Jaber told him that she said to her own doctor that she did not feel dizzy, nauseous, or had headaches, two weeks after the incident.
