In this week’s article, we examine the case of Blair v. NCL (Bahamas) Ltd., 2016 WL 5717560 (S.D. Fla. 2016) an action which “arises from the drowning and near drowning of two children aboard Defendant NLC (Bahamas) Ltd.’s ship. Plaintiff, Colleen Blair, is the mother of the two children and another child who witnesses the events. Plaintiff has sued NCL (Bahamas) Ltd. (NCL) and the ship’s medical personnel…While the Death on the High Seas Act is the exclusive remedy for Plaintiff’s child’s death, the Act does not preclude Plaintiff’s separate emotional distress claims. However, for the reasons set forth below, Plaintiff’s intentional infliction of emotional distress claims…are dismissed without prejudice, Plaintiff’s negligent infliction of emotional distress claims brought on behalf of herself and her child not directly involved in the incident are dismissed with prejudice”.
