NEW ORLEANS – A California woman is suing a local hotel where she was allegedly injured after slipping and falling in the pool area.

Gity Daghighian, and Siavash, filed suit against Marriott International Inc., JW Marriott New Orleans and their insurer in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Sept. 15.

Daghighian claims that on May 22 she was staying at the JW Marriott New Orleans hotel when she slipped and fell on excessively slippery tiles in the hotel’s pool area. The plaintiff alleges she suffered severe bodily injuries in the fall including a broken left arm.

The defendant is accused of creating a dangerous condition, failing to properly maintain hotel premises, failing to act reasonably, creating a trap, improper maintenance and knowing of a hazardous condition near the pool.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for emotional and mental anguish, loss of society, loss of consortium and lost travel expenses.

Daghighian is represented by John W. Redmann of Gretna-based Law Office of John W. Redmann LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Lloyd J. Medley.

Case no. 2014-09057.
