The Florida Record reports that Cheryl Hill, a former passenger on the “Allure of the Seas”, filed a complaint against Royal Caribbean Cruises LTD on March 10th;  it was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Hill claims she was forced to leave the cruise early and fly home for emergency medical treatment after sustaining a fall on the deck of the “Allure”, due to a slippery surface near the ship’s flowrider attraction. According to the Florida Record, “She alleges she sustained a severe fracture to her left ankle, aggravated a herniated disc in her lumbar spine, suffered from physical impairment and/or disability, mental anguish, and the loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, and had to fly home early to obtain emergency medical care.”

The complaint against Royal Caribbean LTD is for negligence. Hill alleges the company ” failed to ensure that the deck is kept in a reasonably safe condition, failed to conduct timely and routine inspections of the deck area, and failed to post appropriate slip hazard warnings at the bleacher area.”

Hill will be represented by Farris J. Martin III and James W. Stroup of Stroup & Martin PA in Fort Lauderdale, and is requesting a trial by jury.
