A Massachusetts man filed a lawsuit against the owner of a pier in Key West, Florida, after he dove off the pier into shallow water, struck his head under water, and became paralyzed as a result. The lawsuit claims that the owner should have posted signs indicating that the water was too shallow for diving.
The pier is on the property of the Galleon Resort and Marina. The injured man, who is an Iraq War veteran, and his family were hotel guests at the resort when the tragedy occurred. The family trip was to celebrate the man's 40th birthday.
The Cook Group owns and operates the Sunset Tiki Bar & Grille, the condominium association that governs the residences at the Resort, and Key West Interval Management, were also named defendants in the lawsuit.
