Touring pro Lauren Davis claims she was knocked out cold by negligently hung lighting in a corporate sponsor booth at the 2011 Family Circle Cup.

 

The world No. 63 is suing Production Design Associates, and High Output, in Berkeley County Court in South Carolina. Davis claimed she was booked to tape an interview on behalf of the sponsor Dove. The defendants were hired to provide and install lighting and video equipment for the shoot.

 

“While plaintiff was waiting to be interviewed, a piece of lighting and video equipment selected, provided and installed by defendants fell and struck plaintiff in the head, knocking her unconscious,” Davis says in the complaint.

 

 

Davis claims she suffered and “continues to suffer from serious, severe and painful head trauma and injuries including a concussion, post-concussion syndrome with its resulting emotional effects, and severe and long-term headaches.”

 

She also claims she also “has required expensive and long term medical treatment including multiple emergency room visits, evaluation and treatment by specialists, diagnostic tests such as CT scans and MRI, prescription medications, and other treatments and will continue to require medical care in the future.”

 

She is seeking damages for negligence and gross negligence.
