A jury awarded $290,000 to a woman who broke a leg and a shoulder in a fall on a cruise ship. On March 16, 2015, plaintiff Elaine Carroll, 64, fell while she was traversing an exterior passageway of a cruise ship that was sailing in the Caribbean Sea, having departed from Tampa. She suffered injuries of a leg and a shoulder.
Carroll sued the ship’s operator, Carnival Corp. The lawsuit alleged that Carnival negligently created a dangerous condition that caused Carroll’s fall.
