A U.S. State Department employee filed a lawsuit against the Kauai Marriott Resort & Beach Club for an injury that occurred in 2011.
The 26 year old employee lives in Connecticut. While on vacation in Hawaii, she alleges that a television fell off the wall and struck her. She suffered a herniated disk in her lower back, which might lead to long term consequences for her job.
“She was working out in the newly-remodeled workout facility when she leaned over a fountain to fill up her water bottle,” the injured woman's lawyer said. A 27-inch flat screen television that was mounted above the water fountain fell and struck her on her lower back. She was unable to stand and walk on her own and an ambulance brought her to the emergency room.
A spokesperson for Kauai Marriott said the claims department could not comment on the matter during litigation. However, the Kauai Marriott has accepted responsibility and apologized to the injured woman.
