Guest At Wyndham Vacation Resort Suffers Severe Back Injury From Slip And Fall Due To Dangerous Condition
Our client, a 35 year old professional man brought his wife and children to Florida for a vacation at Disney World. He made arrangements for his family to stay at Wyndham’s Bonnet Creek Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Late one afternoon, our client was walking down a carpeted hallway to his guest room when he suddenly and unexpectedly fell when several pieces of the carpet tile slid out from underneath him. This caused his feet to come out from under him before landing hard on his back. Immediately following the fall his shorts and socks were covered with the green wet glue that was on the cement floor after the carpet tile slid away.
Immediately after the fall our client was suffering with severe pain in his back and wrist. Fire rescue was called to the scene and transported our client to Florida Hospital Celebration where he was x-rayed, treated and finally released several hours later.
Upon returning from vacation to his home state, our client began a course of treatment and therapy to treat the injuries he sustained to his back, wrists and shoulder. After a short course of therapy, our client was prescribed a Lumbar MRI as his condition was not improving. The lumbar spine MRI revealed a central disk herniation at L5-S1 with compression on both LS nerve roots. After several months of treatment and therapy, our client continues to suffer from back pain and the severe limitations it places on him.
