MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A passenger on a Norwegian Cruise Line Cruise Ship has hired nationally renowned Maritime attorney Brett Rivkind, lead attorney of the Miami-based law firm Rivkind and Margulies, P.A., to file suit on his behalf. The lawsuit, filed in the Federal District Court in Miami, Florida, alleges that the AquaLoop water slide on cruise ships presents serious risks of injury and even death. The lawsuit claims that the cruise ship company failed to guard against such risks, resulting in the passenger being released into this high-speed water slide while another passenger was stuck inside, resulting in a high-speed collision and serious personal injuries to the passengers.
The lawsuit also states this is a known risk of danger that must be properly addressed to avoid serious accidents, including potential deadly collisions. The lawsuit includes a claim for punitive damages based on the cruise ship’s recklessness in operating the water slide on their ship and not guarding against the well-known risks of danger of the AquaLoop slide. According to Brett Rivkind, “This lawsuit addresses the serious safety concerns for the millions of passengers who travel on cruise ships which have introduced many new attractions onboard their ships that typically have only been offered at amusement parks.”
