    $275,000 verdict – Cruise Ship accident

    Cruise ships owe their passenger a high duty of care.  This is especially true when the ship is entering or leaving port, a point at which there are more moving parts and the possibility for accidents.  In one such case, our client suffered serious injuries.

    John Elliott Leighton went to trial and won a $275,000 verdict on behalf of a cruise ship passenger who was struck when a mishandled mooring line snapped and crashed through a window while he was eating in the ship’s dining room.  The passenger sustained neck and back injuries.  The cruise line denied that the passenger was injured.  Through the one week trial, Leighton demonstrated that the mishandled line caused the passenger to be thrown from his seat and tossed against a wall.  The jury awarded $275,000 in damages. Johns v. Norwegian Cruise Line, Miami Dade Circuit Court.
