William Skye v. Maersk Lines Limited – Part 3
Order Denying Motion for Summary Judgment
In this order from the Southern District of Florida, the Court has sided with Plaintiff’s argument that the injuries he sustained while working for Maersk Line Limited are legitimate claims that must be brought before a jury. The order in this Jones Act and Unseaworthiness case is noteworthy for recognizing that chronic sleep deprivation and fatigue could be considered physical stresses that lead to injuries.
