First Lawsuit Already Filed in Cruise Ship Mishap. First of Many?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The first lawsuit has been filed in the wake of the crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship that left thousands of passengers in miserable conditions for days.

Texas resident Cassie Terry sued Carnival Corp. on Friday in Miami federal court. The suit seeks unspecified damages, saying Terry feared for her life or that she might suffer serious injury or illness because of the presence of raw sewage and spoiled food.

Carnival cruise ship tickets require that all lawsuits be filed in Miami. Maritime attorneys say it's difficult but not impossible to win a case unless the plaintiff can show actual injury or illness.

Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said the company hadn't seen the suit and was not in position to comment. The Triumph was disabled Sunday by an engine fire.

Hate to tell ya' " I told ya' so"...but..."I told ya' so"!!! This lawsuit is just the beginning. The rest will wait to see how the suit goes and their lawyers will learn from this initial suit.

This woman would be better of seeking mental health counseling for her mental anguish. It will be cheaper and she'll get better and much quicker results. That goes for anyone else who is thinking of litigating. Why would anyone who was not seriously injured put themselves through a long ordeal with not much chance of a win. I would take that full refund and all the other compensation I got - and go book another cruise!
