Three years ago, Linda Vanston went to the Theatre at Westbury in New York to see Engelbert Humperdinck. Her good time was cut short when she scooted down a wooden bench to make room for someone else and felt sharp pain.
The bench allegedly had shards of wood sticking out of it, giving Vanston 1,000 splinters in her legs and butt.
Her lawyer says that splinters are still coming out to this day, giving her fresh wounds and scars. My9NJ has recent photos.
Vanston’s lawyer also says she receives injections on a weekly basis so the splinters will come out. She had to take time off of work and her mobility has been affected.
Vanston is suing LiveNation, who owns the theatre, for an unspecified amount.
