PHILADELPHIA – A plaintiff who allegedly sustained serious injuries in a women’s restroom during a concert for Chicago and The Doobie Brothers at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J. last summer is suing the companies that own and operate that venue.
Caren Schrank and Michael Schrank of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 13 versus Live Nation Worldwide, Inc. and Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. of Beverly Hills, Calif., and National Event Services, Inc. of Lansdowne.
“On July 21, 2017, plaintiff Caren Schrank was a business invitee lawfully attending a Chicago and Doobie Brothers concert taking place at the BB&T Center, when she entered a lady’s lavatory and slipped on a dirty, wet floor, causing her to fall to the ground and suffer severe and permanent injuries. For a substantial period of time thereto, the aforementioned dangerous and defective condition existed upon defendant’s property,” the complaint reads.
As a result, Schrank avers she suffered serious injuries to her head, neck and back.
The plaintiffs argue the defendants failed to the maintain the concert venue property in a safe condition, failed to properly inspect and remedy the unsafe condition upon the property with notice, actual or constructive, of its dangerous condition and failed to give proper and adequate notice of the dangerous and defective condition of said property, in addition to a litany of other charges.
For multiple counts of negligence and loss of consortium, the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus attorney’s fees, costs, interest and such other relief as the Court may deem just and appropriate.
The plaintiffs are represented by David Brian Rodden of Rodden & Rodden, in Philadelphia.
