CHARLESTON — A guest is suing hotel operators, citing alleged negligence.
Natalie Hall filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Atrium Finance V, LLC and Atrium Hospitality, LP, both d/b/a Embassy Suites and/or Charleston Embassy Suites, alleging that they negligently allowed a metal rod either to fall or to be thrown from a housekeeping cart.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 24, 2016, she and her family were guests at Embassy Suites. While having breakfast, she was struck in the head by a metal rod that fell from a housekeeping cart eight stories above. She suffered serious injuries resulting in medical expenses, hospital bills, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because their employee failed to maintain the cart in a safe manner and failed to provide warning or notice of the falling projectile.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, costs, attorney's fees and such other relief deemed appropriate. She is represented by Damon L. Ellis of Mani Ellis & Layne PLLC in Charleston.
