Complaint – Celebrity Coronavirus

Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A - Maritime Lawyer

This Class Action lawsuit deals with Defendant, Celebrity’s careless and continuous failure to protect its crewmembers assigned to work aboard the vessels from COVID-19 – despite Celebrity having prior notice pertaining to the dangerous conditions and/or explosive contagiousness associated with COVID-19 aboard its vessels from previous passengers, crewmembers and/or other invitees (e.g., independent contractors) Celebrity allowed aboard the vessels and/or actively granted access to same.

Despite having notice that COVID-19 was and/or likely was present aboard the vessels, Celebrity glaringly failed to follow even the most basic safety precautions after acquiring such notice, such as timely quarantining crewmembers stationed aboard the vessels, timely providing crewmembers stationed aboard the vessels masks and/or timely requiring them to observe social distancing measures aboard the vessels.

As a result of its careless conduct, Celebrity negligently exposed and is currently exposing thousands of its crewmembers to COVID-19. Such harm includes, but is not limited to, these crewmembers suffering from lung injuries caused by COVID-19 and/or permanently reduced lung capacity, complications and/or further injury/ies caused by contracting COVID-19 in conjunction with pre-existing illness and/or medical conditions and/or death.
