Abby Lee Miller Sues Hampton Inn and Suites, Says Falling Door Crushed Her
Abby Lee Miller endured a painful nightmare when a hotel door fell over on her, crushing her for nearly a dozen minutes … according to the lawsuit she just filed.
The “Dance Moms” maven says she was staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Monica back in August 2020 when she wheeled herself into the bathroom of her room. Remember, Abby’s been in a wheelchair since 2018 due to her lymphoma battle.
In docs obtained by TMZ, Abby says she was leaving the bathroom when her back left wheel got caught under the sliding bathroom door — and when she attempted to free herself, the more than 300-pound door came crashing down. She says she was pinned in her wheelchair and trapped in the doorway for 6 to 12 minutes.
According to the suit, Abby screamed for help until 2 hotel staffers came to lift the door off of her. She was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, and Abby says she’s still going through physical therapy for the injuries she suffered to her head and shoulder.
The alleged falling door would’ve been more than enough trauma, but in the docs, Abby says she endured other hardships during an extended stay from March to October 2020. For instance, she claims the laundry room was not accessible to wheelchairs, her hallway was often blocked by housekeeping carts … and she was unable to open doors to the pool or gym areas, presumably due to her disability.
Abby is suing the hotel’s parent corporation for negligence, emotional distress, discrimination and false imprisonment … and she’s seeking compensation of at least $8.5 million.
