Personal injury accidents are often sudden and unexpected. When a family is affected by a personal injury accident, they may suffer severe emotional and financial injuries, in addition to their physical injuries. When these accidents occur, there is relief available. Victims are often entitled to medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and a number of other types of personal injury damages.
Monkey Joe’s is a play center that hosts birthday parties and other events catered towards children. Monkey Joe’s are located throughout the United States, including one in Danvers, Massachusetts. On April 13, 2013, Elizabeth Toepfer and her young son Robert were playing on a bouncy toy at the Monkey Joe’s near their home in Fairview Heights, Illinois. According to their lawsuit, the bouncy toy had a tear in it, and Robert’s leg got caught. The incident caused severe and allegedly life-long personal injuries.
The Madison Record recently reported on the pending lawsuit. The Toepfers are seeking more than $50,000 in damages, plus additional costs. According to the lawsuit filed by attorney Kirk A. Caponi, the play house accident caused Robert to become “sick, sore, lame, disordered, and disabled.” He was forced to seek extensive medical treatment for his injuries.
Monkey Joe’s is being represented by attorney James C. Leritz. According to the company, the mother and son waived any liability by signing a waiver of liability agreement.
