Personal injury can happen at any time and in any situation. This statement is especially true in the experience of one injured worker, who was hit by a car while working for Disney Cruise Line. The injured person, who was hit while in a port of call, was treated by the ship’s medical care team. They did not correctly diagnose her injuries, which included multiple broken ribs, and told her that she was able to work for her shift as a dining room waiter. Although she eventually received care from another doctor at a later date, when she returned to work she soon had to stop again due to significant nerve damage. The worker sought legal action against Disney Cruise Line and was awarded $4M as a result in a combination of lost wages, pain and suffering, and punishment.
