A University of Saskatchewan nursing professor is suing a Cariboo spa and guest ranch for injuries she claims were inflicted through advice of a fitness instructor.
Angela Baron filed suit in B.C. Supreme Court against Hills Health & Guest Ranch Ltd. seeking damages.
According to the statement of claim, in October two years ago, Baron was enrolled at a weight-loss program at the upscale facility at 108 Mile Ranch.
It claims an instructor “negligently instructed the plaintiff to use the defendant’s exercise equipment in a way that injured the plaintiff.”
The lawsuit said Hills Health & Guest Ranch breached its duty of care.
Baron alleged injuries include damage to her right eye, pain, vision impairment, distortion of colour, a traumatic cataract and ongoing risk of retinal detachment.
She is claiming loss of income and health impacts including anxiety and depression.
The ranch has not yet filed a statement of defence.
None of the allegations have been heard or proven in court.
