Daigle v. Marriott 2013
Life-Altering Personal Injury Caused by Legionnaires’ Disease
Scientists who understand what’s commonly known as Legionnaires’ disease will tell you the bacteria that cause its pneumonia-like symptoms exist just about everywhere.
And so it’s not really surprising that the bacteria was found a decorative fountain at the Marriott Hotel in Chicago.
But Don Daigle, an IT executive from Austin, Texas, wasn’t thinking about that when he checked into the hotel on a business trip and spent quite some time working near that very fountain.
Shortly after returning home, he became ill and went to see his physician who diagnosed pneumonia. Although placed on antibiotics, Mr. Daigle became sicker and sicker, eventually developing swelling in his brain, which resulted in a lengthy hospital stay and even longer physical therapy.
