GALVESTON — A Texas man is suing Carnival cruise lines, alleging negligence led to him falling down the stairs of a Carnival ship.
Christos Kakaletris filed complaint May 16 in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Carnival Corporation, alleging failure to keep the floor of its vessel reasonably safe for employees.
According to the complaint, Kakaletris, whose company was contracted to work on the ship Carnival Magic, was injured Feb. 25, 2016, when he slipped and fell down a flight of stairs due to a slick substance. The suit says Kakaletris suffered a broken femur and broken knee.
The plaintiff alleges Carnival failed to remove the slick substance on the floor and stairs of its vessel.
Kakaletris seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $75,000, pre-and post-judgment interest and general and special relief. He is represented by Michael Patrick Doyle, Patrick M. Dennis and Jeffrey I. Avery of Doyle Trial Lawyers in Houston.
