A couple are fighting for compensation after a wardrobe panel fell and caused a brain injury.
The 33-year-old woman and her partner are now in contact with the Emirates Palace Hotel, seeking compensation for the life-changing accident which the husband said started, “four years of hell”.
The woman was unpacking and putting her shoes in the bottom of a wardrobe in the hotel when the wooden panel fell down and hit her on the head.
The accident victim, who was previously a successful HR manager, was diagnosed with suffering a traumatic brain injury and a serious form of epilepsy as a result of the accident.
Her husband explained how her seizures now mean that she cannot be left on her own.
“Once she nearly drowned when she had a seizure in the bath, luckily her mother found her in time,” he said.
“She’s suffered broken arms, broken wrists and smashed her face as a result of the seizures as she just blacks out.“
A hearing will now take place on the 9th August 2012 in Abu Dhabi.
