Singapore Airlines is facing a lawsuit from a female passenger who claims a flight attendant caused her physical harm by spilling drinks on the woman’s husband, who then bumped into the plaintiff.
According to the Daily Mail, 71-year-old Jennifer Green has filed a lawsuit with the Victorian Supreme Court in regard to the July 31 Singapore Airlines flight from Melbourne to Singapore on which the woman claims she was injured.
The lawsuit states that a flight attendant spilled a tray of drinks on Green’s husband, who was sitting in an aisle seat. She claims the spill caused her husband to jerk into her, which resulted in Green hitting the metal footrest in front of her with her right leg.
Following the incident, Green now claims her diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis were triggered due to the injury she sustained. The lawsuit states she suffered a "soft tissue injury that caused the development of cellulitis in her right leg, which aggravated the diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis."
Green is seeking monetary compensation for her hospital and medical expenses.
