Customer Question

I was at a nightclub last nite & a halloween prop fell from ceiling & cut my arm in 3 places not that seriously but I have several scrapes & I was bleeding pretty good. Would I have much of a case if I sued the nightclub?

i think you should try to settle the matter with the club management - i dont think you will be able to get any punitive damages if you sue because it was not something that was malicious or wilfill - it was an accident, albeit possible negligence, so try to negoiate for upward $5000 and then they will counter - you could eventually settle on about $2000 without going to court.


good luck
