Princess Cruises cruise ship Caribbean Princess crew member Stanislav Egonjic alleges he was injured aboard the cruise ship while pushing a cart of passengers towels (see video below) aboard, resulting in him injuring his back.
At the time, Caribbean Princess was home ported in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and was sailing eastern and western Caribbean cruise itineraries.
According to the lawsuit complaint, on June 15, 2014, Egonjic injured his back while moving a laundry cart full of towels. On June 17, 2014, he had an MRI taken which identified a disc bulge. More than six months later, on January 22, 2015 he had surgery on his back.
He continued treatment until May 2015, when it was determined his condition would not improve and he would not be able to perform manual labor.
Then, more than two years later on June 15, 2017, Egonjic filed suit in the Circuit Court for the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The action was entitled Stanislav Egonjic, v. Princess Cruise Lines, Ltd., local case number 2017-14456-CA-01. The case was then transferred to Federal court for arbitration, per Princess Cruises Employment Agreement.
