The family of an 8-year-old whose skull was fractured by a foul ball during a game at Turner Field on Aug. 30, 2010 is suing the Braves and MLB for negligence.
The suit doesn’t disclose the names of those filing. They’d like both their privacy and their money. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which has decided to play along and not reveal any names, the suit seeks unspecified damages for the girl’s pain and suffering, punitive damages and compensation for the family’s medical expenses, which are expected to exceed $100,000.
The girl was 6 years old when she was injured. No additional details on her condition were provided.
These kinds of lawsuits against MLB teams and the league have rarely succeeded. The league has warnings printed on every ticket sold stating that fans attending games do so at their own risk.
