Do we have a case against a motel for an injury suffered at its swimming pool?
Question Details: My 7 year old son and 15 year old daughter were in our hotel swimming pool while on vacation. My son was outside the pool and my daughter was inside. They were hitting a beach ball back and forth to each other. The ball hit a light fixture hanging on the wall and the glass from the fixture shattered. The glass sliced my 7 year olds should down to his shoulder blade. 911 was called and we went to the emergency room for him to be stitched up. He had to get 17 stitches total. The next morning we went to get a copy of the accident report and the first thing the general manager said was that he reviewed the video and that our son was unsupervised. My husband said no, our 15 year old was with him. He then said, the girl is the one who hit the ball. At that point we just left. We feel there should not have been fixtures that have risk of shattering in a pool area. They gave us the accident report, however 4 days later and we still do not have a case number. We have pictures of the lights, and of my son's wound.
