Disney Cruise Line sued for negligence over child falling on stairs


The Disney Fantasy continues the Disney Cruise Line tradition of blending the elegant grace of early 20th century transatlantic ocean liners with contemporary design to create one of the most stylish and spectacular cruise ships afloat. The Disney Fantasy offers modern features, new innovations and unmistakable Disney touches.

Disney Cruise Line is being sued for negligence by a parent who alleges that her child was injured on the stairs in the onboard theater. Martha Lynch claimed that a raised portion of a stair caused her “child to catch her shoe and fall.”

The complaint was filed against Magical Cruise Co. (doing business as Disney Cruise Line) on August 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division.

The alleged incident occurred on August 25, 2015 and Lynch claims that her child “suffered physical and mental anguish, disability, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life and incurred medical expenses.” The suit states that the cruise line “failed to inspect and maintain premises and failed to warn passengers of hazardous areas.”

Lynch has asked for a trial by jury and is looking for the “stated damages, interest, costs of suit and other relief that may be justly entitled.”
