A Philadelphia man is suing after a table allegedly collapsed and struck him in the head.


Kareem Bishop filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 12 naming Voyeur Nightclub, Esbert LLC and Mayfield Social Club as the defendants.

According to Bishop, he was at the Voyeur Nightclub at 1221 Saint James St. in Philadelphia in October when the incident occurred. Bishop says while he was there, a folded up table or other part of the property which was not properly fastened, collapsed and struck him in the face. Bishop claims he suffered various injuries including lacerations and scarring to his forehead, cheek and lip and post concussion syndrome.

Bishop argues the defendants were negligent in maintaining the nightclub and should be held accountable for the cost of his pain and injuries.

Bishop is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.

He is being represented by attorney Thomas A. Masterson, Jr.

Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Case No. 140201370.
