Hotel Ceiling Panel Crashes in Shower

$133,000

Litigation Type - Slip, Trip and Fall

Client Injury - Nerve damage

Our client from California was in his Minneapolis hotel room after a long day attending a work conference. He was taking a shower when a large panel fell from the ceiling of the shower and hit our client in the face, very near his right eye.  The incident was reported to the front desk and a maintenance engineer came to his room but was unable to reinstall the panel. 

Our client went to HCMC for treatment of his facial wound that evening. Since the accident, our client had ongoing nerve problems and pain in the right side of his face and treated with neurologists and other specialists.

Three years after the accident and after three years of treatment that did not cure his injuries, Jeff Sieben arbitrated the case against the hotel’s insurance company and its lawyers. He obtained a recovery from the arbitrator for $133,000.
