When you're saying that your brother in law was going to sit at one of the stands that they place at the tables, could you please clarify for me if that is a chair? Do people normally sit on those stands?
What part is the part that went completely through his eye?
I have a better idea of what happened now, but I still have some questions.
How did the stand go through his eye? Did he lose his balance? Was there something wrong with the seating? Was the floor wet with a substance he may have slipped on?
Did the employee place the stand on the table?
Basically, was there anything that happened that would attribute blame for this to Chuck E Cheese?
It sounds like you would have a valid cause of action against Chuck E Cheese for that and they would be responsible for paying more than just your medical bills.
It sounds like you have a potential cause of action for negligence here. Along with the hospital bills and any other bills incurred, you could potentially recover pain and suffering damages as well as damages for permanent loss of the eye.
I would consult a personal injury attorney in Virginia regarding this matter.
