GRETNA – A local arcade where laser tag competitions occur is being sued by the mother of a girl who claims she was injured after being jabbed in the head by a laser gun.

Wanda Blackburn, on behalf of her minor daughter, filed suit against Adventure Quest Laser Tag and their insurer in the 24th Judicial District Court on May 20.

Blackburn alleges that her daughter visited Adventure Quest Laser Tag on May 22, 2013 located at 1200 Clearview Parkway in Metairie. The plaintiff asserts her daughter was injured on the premises when she was jabbed in the temple by one of the laser guns. Blackburn claims she reported the incident to employees and her daughter was transported to a local hospital where she was diagnosed with a concussion and swelling on her forehead.

The defendant is accused of failing to see what should have been seen, failing to maintain proper condition on the premises and failing to maintain a proper lookout.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought by the plaintiff.

Blackburn is represented by Tony Dooley of New Orleans-based The Dooley Law Office LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division I Judge Nancy A. Miller.

Case no. 738-656.
