Celebrity Cruises Crewmember Awarded $2.5m Damages After Battery from Fellow Crew Member

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

Should a cruise line be liable if one of their crew members attacks another crew member and breaks his leg and they give him some, basic medical care and send him back to his home country of India without any follow up care?  The jury in this case answered yes and the court upheld the verdict.  There are issues here of negligent hiring, supervision and retention of an employee as well as negligent medical treatment.
