GALVESTON – A Louisiana man has filed a lawsuit as a result of injuries he allegedly suffered last year while watching a cheerleading competition at a local convention center.
In court documents filed Jan. 9 in the Galveston District of the Southern District of Texas, Terrebonne Parish resident Cameron Dennis claims that he sustained injuries to both ankles as he attempted to descend an aisle separating portable bleachers in which he had a seat for the “2016 Cash Bash” on Jan. 5, 2016.
“He suddenly lost his balance and was thrown to the floor on the bleacher risers,” the complaint says.
It further shows that Dennis’s left foot “had slipped into a gap at the joint between two sections of the sections of the portable bleachers and become lodged there.”
Per the suit, Moody Gardens, Inc. owned and operated the convention center which hosted the competition. Said competition was purportedly under the auspices of Varsity Brands, LLC, doing business as American Cheer Power, while it is asserted that Specialty Supply & Installation, LLC assembled the bleachers.
Dennis says that he required surgery and was unable to work as a CDL driver.
A jury trial is requested.
Attorney Joseph C. Bartels of The Law Offices of Joseph C. Bartels in New Orleans is representing the complainant.
