Former Disney Cruise Line Cast Member Sues Disney Due to Permanent Injuries From Exploding Chocolate
A former Disney Cruise Line Cast Member is suing the company after he suffered injuries in the ship’s galley. According to a report from WKMG Click Orlando, the one-time food manager was severely injured.
Michel Palus, a French citizen, suffered facial burns and permanent hearing loss in the left ear after a pressurized chocolate canister exploded in the pastry kitchen.
The accident occurred on November 18, 2018. Palus claims that Disney Cruise Line did not provide a reasonably safe work environment. Among his specific complaints are inadequate work space and a lack of non-heated work surfaces. In all, the lawsuit names 25 examples of the unsafe work environment.
The lawsuit also alleges that Disney Cruise Line did not provide a safety manual and that Palus did not receive proper care after the accident.
Palus is demanding disability pay and all entitled damages.
