SCRANTON — A father is suing Millett Real Estate and others, citing alleged gross negligence and failure to warn related to a overhang at a hotel pool.
M.K., a minor, by Randy Klimek, guardian, and Randy Klimek, individually, filed a complaint on Sept. 21 in the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants, alleging they failed to ensure a pool on their property was safe for those using it.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Oct. 26, 2016, minor plaintiff M.K. was a business invitee at defendants' Hampton Inn.
While swimming in the indoor pool, she allegedly struck her face on a sharp overhang edge of the pool's tile. She allegedly suffered facial injuries, nasal bridge laceration, acute scar of the nasal dorsum and shock to the nerves. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently permitted and maintained the sharp overhang edge to remain a hazardous condition and failed to place barricade around it.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants in an amount exceeding $50,000, plus interest and costs. They are represented by Todd Johns of Dunmore.
The Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas Case No. is 18-cv-5050.
