According to the court documents, on or about March 1, 2014, Plaintiffs were guests at a hotel in Corpus Christi, Texas. On this date, the common areas of the hotel were under renovation, and the hallways leading to the Plaintiffs’ room were very poorly lit. In this hallway, a fire extinguisher box was mounted on a wall, with sharp edges and corners protruding out approximately eight inches, at a height of approximately three and a half feet. The Plaintiffs’ face was lacerated on the sharp corner or edge of this firebox, while walking to her room.
