PHILADELPHIA — A New Jersey woman is suing a casino in Bensalem for allegations that the casino's negligence caused her to fall and injure her leg.
Ann Van Ness filed a lawsuit on March 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment Inc., doing business as Parx Casino; Greenwood Gaming Services Inc.; Keystone Turf Club; and Bensalem Racing Association Inc., doing business as Parx Casino and Racing, citing negligence.
According to the complaint, Ness was on the defendant’s property located at 2999 Street Road in Bensalem on Oct. 26, 2015. The plaintiff, who was 85, was exiting the casino when she was run over by an agent of the defendant pushing a dolly of stackable chairs, causing her to fall, sprain, and fracture her leg, the suit says. She avers that the injury was a direct result of the defendant’s negligence.
Ness seeks a judgment against the defendant for damages in excess of $75,000, interest, costs, compensatory damages, punitive damages, interests, costs, disbursements, attorney’s fees, and a trial by jury. She is represented by Robert P. Snyder and Erik P. Snyder of the Synder Law Group PC.
