Several books, including a large textbook, and other items fell from the bin onto Reid’s head and neck, the suit says. The items belonged to her seatmate.
The suit says the flight attendant gave Reid an ice pack and Ibuprofen, and an injury and incident report was made. Reid said she sustained permanent brain trauma and suffers from headaches, muscle soreness to her neck and spasms.
Reid, who has a doctorate in library science, says she also suffers from short-term memory loss, difficulty in organizing tasks, drowsiness and blurred vision. She said she is receiving medical and psychological treatment and physical therapy.
