Lawsuit Settled for $10.9 Million Related to Toddler’s Fall at Virginia Hotel

A lawsuit has been settled for $10.9 million over the head injuries a toddler sustained after falling from a hotel walkway in Norfolk, Virginia.

Elijah Clayton, who was almost 3-years-old, fell on September 4, 2011 at the Ramada Hotel in Norfolk. The railing on the second-floor walkway was missing a spindle and the toddler went through the opening, causing him to fall to the pavement below, according to the lawsuit. He suffered permanent brain injuries.

The child’s mother, Chelsye Clayton, sued the hotel owner, Pride Group LLC for $50 million in damages. A payment plan and special trust for the child were set up as part of the settlement.
