A lawsuit involving Carnival Cruise Lines and passenger Denise Kaba, filed in United States District Court Southern District of Florida, came to an end when Federal Judge Ursula Ungaro ordered the ship line to pay $2,998,155.70 for Kaba’s slip and fall accident in August 2009.

Kaba slipped and fell on a resin pool deck surface that was hard and “slippery as ice.” Carnival was aware of accidents on that ship as well as others with the resin surface. After discovery established the fact about the surface, Carnival admitted liability.

Kaba’s fall resulted in a six surgeries for a  fractured patella. She will also need up to two total knee replacements in the future.
