GRETNA – A man who claims he was ejected from a go-kart at a local racetrack is suing for severe injuries requiring surgical correction.

Corey Clavier filed suit against Chubb & Son Inc., Chubb Custom Insurance Company, NOLA Motor Club LLC, NOLA Motorsports Park, Laney C. Racing LLC, Laney C LLC and Laney Chouest in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 17.

Clavier contends he was at NOLA Motor Club located at 11075 Nicolle Blvd. in Avondale where he was riding in a go-kart and going around a curve when the go-kart hit rocks and debris causing him to be ejected from the vehicle and slammed to the pavement. The plaintiff asserts the incident resulted in injuries that required surgical repair and that as a result he is permanently disfigured.

The defendant is accused of vicarious liability, failing to train staff, failing to supervise, failing to inspect and failing to warn the public of how common severe personal injuries are at the go-kart track.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental and emotional pain and suffering, aggravation, inconvenience, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of wages, loss of earning capacity, permanent disfigurement and permanent disability.

Clavier is represented by Steven J. Rando of the New Orleans-based Law Offices of Steven J. Rando LLC and Colin J. Lagarde of New Orleans-based Lagarde Law LLC.

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

Case no. 748-787.
