MEDIA — A daughter and mother are suing Pump It UP, an entertainment facility, citing alleged negligence.
Trinity Polche, a minor, and Garcelle Polche filed a complaint on Nov. 6 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against Pump It UP, alleging the entertainment facility failed to provide safe conditions for its invitees.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 8, Trinity and Garcelle Polche were exiting the bathroom when its door quickly closed upon the tip of Trinity's left pinky finger. She suffered a serious crush injury to the small finger on her left hand and severe shock to her nerves and nervous system, the suit says.
Garcelle Ploche became liable to expend various sums of money for medical treatment. The plaintiffs hold Pump It UP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to ascertain and properly adjust or calibrate the bathroom door's speed to ensure that safety of those using it and failed to provide adequate warning of the door's defective condition.
