An American woman is suing for negligence after she allegedly fell over and suffered “serious injuries” at an overcrowded Easter egg hunt held last year.
According to documents obtained by ABC News a woman named Rachel Townsend from the US state of Oregon has filed a lawsuit against both the venue The Aerie at Eagle Landing and the event planning company Red Shoe Productions for her injuries.
Rachel claims the defendants should have known the activity would cause harm if not conducted safely and blames them for allegedly not controlling the crowd.
She alleges that when the Easter egg hunt started, a number of older children and people who had not paid to attend rushed the hunting area which caused her to get shoved in the back and fall to the ground.
The fall allegedly caused her to sustain injuries of a torn meniscus in her left knee, a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee, sprains and strains.
She is suing for a total of $112,411, (approx $150K au) citing negligence and personal injuries. Townsend also alleges that she underwent surgery on her left knee and incurred $9,411 in medical expenses and lost wages totaling $3,000.
Oh dear! Isn’t that something you need to be prepared for when participating in a big Easter Hunt?
