Women Sues Cruise Line for Ankle Fracture

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, especially when you least expect it.  This is especially true when you are on vacation and your guard is down!  This is true for one woman who is currently pursuing a lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines.  According to the report, the vacationing woman fell down a wet stairway aboard one of the cruise ships and fractured her ankle.  The lawsuit states that the Carnival ship failed to put slip-resistant material on parts of the stairs, employees didn't remove the water on the stairs, nor did the ship warn passengers of potentially slippery conditions.   To read more, please click the original article here.

So what does this mean for the average person walking on floors, especially industrial ones?  Be safe and take your time. For employers who are responsible for keeping others safe, make sure you properly maintain your floors to avoid a potential premises liability claim!
If you have slipped and fell on the property of another, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and potential pain and suffering.  This may include cases where sidewalks were improperly maintained due to the winter weather, such as failure to remove snow and ice.   Attorney Doug Stoehr takes cases for clients who have sustained slip-and-fall injuries due to the fault or negligence of another.  For more information on his Altoona, PA area practice, please call his firm at 814-946-4100.
