Tennis - American teenager Lauren Davis has filed a lawsuit against Production Design Associates, and High Output, in Berkeley County Court for a injury she sustained to her head during the Family Circle Cup in 2011. Davis was knocked out by negligently hung lighting in a corporate sponsor booth at the event in 2011.
Davis is currently ranked no. 63 in the world. Davis says in the complaint, "While plaintiff was waiting to be interviewed, a piece of lighting and video equipment selected, provided and installed by defendants fell and struck plaintiff in the head, knocking her unconscious.
as a result, the plaintiff suffered and continues to suffer from serious, severe and painful head trauma and injuries including a concussion, post-concussion syndrome with its resulting emotional effects, and severe and long-term headaches." She claims she also "has required expensive and long term medical treatment including multiple emergency room visits, evaluation and treatment by specialists, diagnostic tests such as CT scans and MRI, prescription medications, and other treatments and will continue to require medical care in the future."
