Guest sues resort operators over broken lounge chair

By The Madison County Record | Jan 3, 2017

BELLEVILLE — A woman claims she was injured on a broken lounge chair while vacationing in Jamaica.

Roberta L. Vogt filed a complaint on Dec. 15, in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Sagicor Life Insurance Co. and Aimbridge Hospitality, alleging they breached their duty to ensure that the property was safe for their guests.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 30, 2015, she was a guest at the defendants' golf resort in Runaway Bay, Jamaica, when he sustained a laceration on her right leg from a broken lounge chair.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to inspect the defective lounge chair, failed to repair or replace the lounge chair and failed to warn her of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against each defendant in an amount exceeding $50,000, plus costs of this suit and all other relief that the court deems appropriate.

She is represented by Jeremy A. Gogel of The Gogel Law Firm in St. Louis.
