Piccuta Law Group Injury Lawsuit In The News
On January 16th, 2015, a Monterey County injury lawsuit filed by the Piccuta Law Group was in the news. The Carmel Pinecone newspaper published the article which describes the case in greater detail. The Piccuta Law Group filed the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiff, who is a nine year old girl, for injuries she suffered on a bouncy slide at a commercial pumpkin patch. The lawsuit seeks compensation for the girl’s injuries from the owner of the pumpkin patch, the owner of the land on which the pumpkin patch was located, and the maker and supplier of the slide.
Pumpkin patch sued over broken leg
A PUMPKIN patch on Rio Road is the target of a lawsuit by the parents of a 9-year-old girl they say broke her leg last October while going down a 20-foot inflatable slide at the patch.
Peter and Sidra Davi are suing Del Monte Pumpkin Patch for injuries they say occurred after she struck a “bump” on the face of the slide.
“The bump or raised obstruction,” according to the lawsuit filed Jan. 7, “caused both the [girl] and her brother to be wildly launched several feet into the air and to come into a violent and forceful collision with the face of the slide upon landing.”
Besides selling pumpkins and other items, the patch offers a chance for parents to pay a $10 fee to let their kids play on bounce houses, slides and other play structures, according to the suit.
The girl, identified only as E.D. in the lawsuit, was taken to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula for treatment before being taken by ambulance to University of San Francisco Medical Center for a procedure under anesthesia to set her broken leg, the suit says.
As a result of the accident, the girl has suffered severe, permanent and debilitating injuries and extreme pain, according to the complaint, filed for the Davis by Monterey attorney Charles Albert Piccuta.
