A Royal Caribbean Cruise ship passenger alleges that she was struck and injured by a falling piece of the shower in Stateroom 2547. Ms. Boden was on a nine day cruise on the "Enchantment of the Seas," a cruise ship owned by Royal Carribean, when she was allegedly injured by the shower and broken metal pieces falling on her. Ms. Boden claims she was severely injured as a result of these hazardous conditions. The Complaint seeks damages in excess of Seventy Five Thousand Dollars ($75,000.00). The Plaintiff was required to bring her claim in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida due to the ticket that was issued to her at the time of voyage. Source Cruise lines typically limit a passenger's choice of "venue" (where you may file a lawsuit). By imposing venue restrictions, cruise lines hope to limit the number of claims filed against them. Cruise lines are aware (and hopeful) injury victims will be deterred from bringing suit if they reside in a different state than the predetermined venue. In addition to limiting where suit can be filed, cruise lines also limit the time in which suit needs to be filed. In many cases, a passenger's cruise ticket provides for a one-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims – which is shorter than a typical statute of limitations imposed by state statutes. Without question, cuise lines have stacked the deck in their favor. If you are injured on a cruise it is important to consult an attorney immediately to level the playing field.
