Jury Awards Woman Injured on Carnival Cruis Ship $2.9 Million

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

New York, NY: A woman who fell and injured her knee while vacationing on a Carnival cruise ship and subsequently sued the cruise line, has been awarded $2.9 million as settlement of her personal injury lawsuit.

In 2009, then 53-year old Denise Kaba slipped and fell on Carnival's pool deck, fracturing her right patella. Her injury required open reduction and internal fixation, and five other surgeries, including a patellar tendon replacement with a cadaver allograft. Kaba claimed she remains in pain, walks with a halting gait and requires a brace to walk. Kaba also alleged that as a result of her injuries she was unable to return to work, however, the defense countered that she had no intention of returning to work, as she had not been employed for over 30 years.
