BEAUMONT – An “unlit” watch room at the Port Arthur Max Bowl allegedly caused a woman to trip on some stairs.
Seeking up to $1 million in damages, Becky Sue Platt filed suit against Pin City (Max Bowl) on April 17 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, Platt brought her children to Max Bowl to play laser tag on Aug. 11, 2018. Two employees had directed her to a “watch area.”
“Upon entering the room, it was unlit,” the suit states. “She stepped and fell down several unlit steps.”
Platt contends Max Bowl failed to warn her of the dangerous condition.
She is suing for her past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, pain, mental anguish, impairment and disfigurement.
Attorney Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell represents her.
Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. A-203700
