alexandria la.'s haynes best western inn & suites & convention center sued in slip n fall

ahh slip-n-falls. whatever in the world would the courthouse crowd do without slip-n-falls (as well as divorces, protective orders and paternity cases) to give the appearance of actually doing something,  you know, to justify their tax parasite existence. luckily for them, louisiana lawyers are more than happy to provide them endlessly with.

according to the petition of mary l. doucett, of calcasieu parish, louisiana, on 20 january 2012, she had just checked in at the front desk of the haynes best western inn and suites and conference center at 2720 north macarthur drive in alexandria, la. and was in the process of looking for her room:

"when she fell as a result of a variation in elevation of the floor, causing her severe pain and discomfort, and fracturing her femoral shaft which required her to have surgery to repair the fracture with a intramedullary implant and which will require a surgery in the future."
ms. doucett "alleges that the damages sustained in this matter exceed the sum of $50,000, the threshold for a jury trial in state court."

the petition for damages was filed on 17 january 2013, by lake charles, louisiana, attorney, terry j. johnson, of the johnson and vercher law firm, is docketed at number: 246,448 and is allotted to ninth judicial district court judge john c. davidson.
