According to KTLA, the Los Angeles County Health Department is investigating the Playboy Mansion after hundreds of people reported becoming sick after attending a party there last month. The party was part of the DOMAINFest Global Conference, which included functions at the Sky Bar on Sunset Boulevard and at the Playboy Mansion.
Nearly 200 people became sick with what some suspect is Legionnaires’ disease, an illness characterized by coughing, chills, fevers and violent headaches.
Whether safety issues – such as ensuring the whirlpool tubs where numerous people congregated were clean – played a role is in question, as is who is to blame for the outbreak.
If you have become ill due to a unclean or unsafe condition, you may be able to bring an action for negligence if those responsible failed in their duty to follow proper procedures. It is important to contact an experienced California personal injury attorney to discuss your options.
Here, both actions of the company that organized the convention as well as conditions allowed to exist at the Playboy Mansion will be evaluated.
For more information or if you believe you may have suffered harm due to the carelessness or recklessness of another person or entity’s actions, please contact the experienced California personal injury lawyer at Sette Law Office.
