This case involves a man who was staying at a high-end hotel chain while on business in southern California. During his first night in the hotel, the man went to use the shower, where he noted the unusually slippery nature of the tub’s surface. The tub was freestanding, and lacked a number of common safety features, including no-slip strips, handrails, anti-slip coating or other traction aids. Despite his best efforts to use the shower carefully, the man slipped and fell while using the tub, striking his head on the edge of the tub. As a result of the fall the man suffered a traumatic brain injury, which required extensive treatment and physical rehabilitation.
