A New Hampshire man who says he was permanently injured when a folding chair in the Fenway bleachers collapsed, sending him plummeting to the concrete, yesterday filed suit against the Red Sox in federal court.
Richard McLaughlin is seeking unspecified damages - but more than $75,000 - for injuries he says he incurred during a game on May 4, 2010 (against the Angels), while sitting in the right-field bleachers, behind the Sox bullpen:
Plaintiff was seated in a metal folding chair provided by Defendants.
During the game, the folding chair that Plaintiff was seated in suddenly collapsed and flattened, causing Plaintiff to fall backwards onto the cement, hitting his head, neck, back and right shoulder. Plaintiff suffered serious and permanent injuries.
