Personal Injury Lawsuit: Skokie Girl Hurt in Fall During Circus Camp
April 26, 2011
The mother of a girl allegedly injured during a fall at circus camp filed a lawsuit Monday against the Circus and the Skokie Park District.
Linda Braun claims her daughter, Eliana Braun, was injured July 7, 2009, when she fell from a cloud wing during a circus camp at Middleton School at 8300 S. St. Louis Ave. in Skokie, according to a lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.
Eliana Braun suffered serious damage to her teeth, including the loss on an adult tooth, from the fall, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims the Acrofabulous Circus LLC and the Skokie Park District organized, operated and controlled the event. It claims they failed to adequately supervise camp participants, didn’t provide proper padding on the floor and failed to provide adequate spotting.
