GRETNA – A mother who claims she was placing her son into a carnival ride when its operator started the machine in motion and ran over her foot is suing.
Kwanyza Dorosan filed suit against T.H.E. Insurance Company and Goldstar Amusements Inc. in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 10.
Dorosan claims she was securing her son on a carnival ride owned by Goldstar Amusements when the operator started the ride and it ran over her foot. The plaintiff alleges her foot was injured in the incident and resulted in a bone spur, excessive swelling and subsequent nerve damage that needed to be corrected though surgery. Dorosan contends the incident led to her disability.
The defendant is accused of failing to yield, failing to maintain control of the ride and failing to keep a proper lookout.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for physical pain and suffering, disability, embarrassment, humiliation, lost wages, impairment of earning capacity, medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity and loss of enjoyment of life.
Dorosan is represented by attorney James L. Oliver III of Baton Rouge.
The case has been assigned to Division A Judge Raymond S. Steib Jr.
Case no. 748-577.
