GRETNA – A local casino is being sued by a woman who was allegedly injured after she tripped on a bolt sticking out of the floor.

Addie L. Schexnaydre, and husband Rene, filed suit against Treasure Chest Casino LLC and Boyd Gaming Corporation in the 24th Judicial District Court on June 2.

Schexnaydre asserts she was exiting the Treasure Chest Casino located at 5050 Williams Blvd. in Kenner when she tripped on a bolt protruding out of the floor and fell. The plaintiff alleges she received injuries to her muscles, joints, bones, ligaments and tissues in the incident. Schexnaydre claims that the pathway was not safe when she was walking through it.

The defendant is accused of allowing defective and dangerous conditions, failing to keep a reasonably safe facility and grounds, failing to warn of the defective and dangerous condition, failing to exercise reasonable caution in regards to facility and grounds, failing to exercise due care under the situation and circumstances and acting in a careless manner.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of earning capacity and medical supplies.

Schexnaydre is represented by Darryl J. Becnel of the Reserve-based Becnel Law Firm LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Scott U. Schlegel.

Case no. 738-990.
