Slip and fall injuries are the most common complaint we come across from passengers, in particular on outdoor decks.  Mr. Perkins has conducted extensive discovery and obtained Federal Court orders pertaining to the materials used on the decking of ships and the number of prior falls on thereon.

The cruise lines owe a “duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of its passengers.” See, Hall vs. Royal Caribbean Cruises, Limited, 888 So. 2d 654 (Fla. 3d DCA 2004), 2004 A.M.C. 1913;  citing Kermarec v.

The cruise lines also owe a “duty to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances”. See, Harnesk vs. Carnival Cruise Lines, Inc, 1992 AMC 1472, 1991 WL 329584 (S. D. Fla. 1991). The cruise line’s “duty is to warn of dangers known to the carrier in places where the passenger is invited to, or may reasonably be expected to visit.” See, Carlisle vs. Ulysses Line Limited, S.A., 475 So. 2d 248 (Fla. 3d DCA 1985).   The cruise line has a duty to provide safe ingress and egress to and from the ship.
