“A former housekeeper at Embassy Suites Irvine has been awarded a $70,000 settlement in a workers compensation case against the hotel.
Maribel Duarte, a Tustin resident and housekeeper for 16 years at Embassy Suites, won the settlement earlier this year for injuries sustained in 2009 and 2010 at the hotel. The company also reimbursed the state Employment Development Department for $6,100 and paid Duarte’s medical bills, which were more than $25,000, said David Goldstein, Duarte’s attorney. Duarte injured her neck, arms and legs from repetitive motion from cleaning hotel rooms, injuries which a doctor found to be completely work related.”
