A woman is suing a Williamsburg resort for $500,000 after she says she slipped and fell in her hotel room bathroom in 2015.
Lynda Campanell was a guest at Greensprings Vacation Resort on Feb. 6, 2015 when she attempted to step out of the tub after a bath and fell, according to documents filed Feb. 6 of this year in the Williamsburg-James City County Circuit Court.
Documents state Campanell suffered severe and permanent bodily injury following the fall, causing “mental anguish,” physical pain and loss of income.
Campanell was exiting the bathtub when she stepped onto a towel “provided by the defendants;” the towel then slid, causing her to fall forward into a wall, documents state.
Campanell is suing both Greensprings, located at 3500 Ludwell Parkway in Williamsburg, and its parent company, Diamond Resorts International Marketing Inc.
Court documents say the resort and its employees were negligent in “allowing a dangerous condition to exist in its bathroom,” according to documents.
Documents also state there is an “implied warranty” that the towel provided on the bathroom floor was suitable for the intended purpose: to prevent guests from slipping when leaving the tub.
Campanell is requesting a jury trial, although no future court dates are listed in online court records.
A phone message left with Campanell’s attorney, T. Wayne Williams, was not immediately returned Monday evening.
Online court records do not list any attorneys as representatives of Greensprings.
