It's got to stop at some point. Some "fans" trying to ruin our national pastime - the game of baseball. Spectator lawsuits have been going on for quite some time, as we discussed just last week, here. Now, there's a brand new case and I'll tell you all about it.
Look, I'm a trial lawyer and the only cases I handle are those in which someone caused serious traumatic injuries. And in this new case, Judith Rosenfeld suffered an orbital fracture requiring surgery and some permanent vision loss when she was hit by a foul ball while a spectator at a baseball game. I can get a jury to award hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not more) for pain and suffering for those types of injuries. There's a catch, though. Someone other than my client has to be at fault! That's why I'd have declined Rosenfeld's case had she come to me for representation. There was no one at fault.
Here's what happened. Ms. Rosenfeld went to Dutchess County Stadium in Wappingers Falls, New York on August 5, 2006 to watch the home team Hudson Valley Renegades (Major League Baseball's minor league affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays) take on the Vermont Lake Monsters. The Renegades won, 3-2.
