Hotel where a Delaware woman was attacked during her Dominican Republic vacation was hit with a lawsuit for $3 million.
51-year-old Tammy Lawrence-Daley from Wilmington, first revealed her story in a lengthy Facebook post made on May 29.
She says she was beaten and strangled multiple times to unconsciousness while staying at Majestic Elegance Punta Cana.
She’s now suing Majestic Resorts, the parent company of the Punta Cana resort, for “justice” and “accountability” in addition to compensation for “permanent, life-changing injuries,” according to a press release distributed by her lawyers Wednesday night.
“Mrs. Lawrence-Daley and her team want Americans to know that they are being misled to believe that the Majestic Elegance Punta Cana did their job in handling this matter and that their facilities are safe,” the press release reads.
In a statement released in June, Majestic Elegance shed doubt on Lawrence-Daley’s story saying it was waiting for police to explore “weak point, contradictions” in the “strange and unusual case.”
The resort claimed that after the incident, Lawrence-Daley formally demanded a $2.2 million compensation agreement. They say she went public with her story only after she didn’t get a response.
