A Royal Caribbean Employee Gets $20.3 in Compensation
Miami-Dade County. A worker aboard a Voyager of the Seas cruise ship, which sails to the Royal Caribbean flag, received $20.3 million in compensation for the personal injuries she suffered when her hand got crushed by a door. The incident happened while conducting a routine fire drill at port on route back to Miami from Barcelona, Spain in 2008. The workers hand got lodged into a narrow space as the semi-tight door closed and crushed her hand. The company sent her to a doctor in Barcelona but her injuries were improperly diagnosed and only served to worsen her condition. The worker spent two years undergoing rehabilitation and received the sum of $25 per day in disability according to Royal Caribbean’s insurance policy. She was unjustly fired in 2010 and she eventually sued the company in 2016 for negligent safety procedures, failure to provide adequate medical attention, unjust dismissal, and breach of contract. This past July 27th, the worker was awarded $20.3 million to cover her personal injuries, losses, and future medical care.
