April Gentry v. Carnival Corp., et. al.

Order Denying in Part Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss

In this order, the Southern District of Florida largely denies Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss, in a case where a passenger was injured while participating in a shore excursion.  The court allowed the Plaintiff to maintain her causes of action for injuries she sustained while on the shore excursion, because it found that the Plaintiff had properly pled causes of action for negligence, joint venture, and apparent agency.  Our attorneys regularly litigate cases on behalf of passengers injured on shore excursions overseas in order to hold both the cruise line and the shore excursion companies responsible for injuries they inflict through their negligence.
