According to the Washington Post, Pat Dent, who became ill with Legionnaires disease last August, is suing the hotel where he contracted the disease. Mr. Dent stayed at the Plim Plaza Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland, became sick several days later, and was hospitalized and diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. His medical bills would eventually add up to more than $200,000. Mr. Dent filed suit in Baltimore last Wednesday, and is seeking $5 million in damages and an additional $1 million for loss of consortium.
The outbreak at the Plim Plaza Hotel last summer led to six confirmed cases of Legionnaires disease. Jules Zacher, Esq. is currently involved in a separate case against the Plim Plaza Hotel, on behalf of other victims of this outbreak.
