By Tia Benton | Apr 29, 2013


NEW ORLEANS – An Atlanta, Ga. man is suing a local hotel after he broke his nose when he walked face first into a glass door.

Timothy Daniel filed a lawsuit against Clarion Inn & Suites, Choice Hotel International Inc. and their insurer in the Orleans Parish Central District Court on Feb. 15.

Daniel claims that while exiting the hotel building, without any warning signs, he walked into an unmarked electric glass door and broke his nose because the door failed to open properly.

The defendant is accused of failing to keep doors properly functioning for its guest, failing to have doors properly marked for its guest, failing to ensure the safety of its guest, failing to comply with the legal and contractual obligations for its guest, failing to act in good faith in paying for the losses of its guest and breaching its fiduciary duties and obligations for its guests.

The plaintiff is seeking full and just compensation for his losses caused by the injuries.

Attorney N. Sundiata Haley of New Orleans-based Haley Law Firm LLC will represent Daniel’s in court.

This case has been assigned to Division G Judge Robin M. Giarrusso.

Case no. 2013-01456.
