A disabled woman has allegedly filed a lawsuit against Zac Brown after being injured at a Boston, Massachusetts concert in August 2015.
According to TMZ, Karen Perry was seated in an area designated for disabled audience members at Zac Brown Band's concert in Fenway Park. In her lawsuit, Perry claims that when Zac came off stage to greet fans, he caused a wave of concertgoers to stampede into the disabled section.
Security guards tried to help the situation by moving the metal gate near Perry, who is legally blind, but unfortunately the gate became lodged in her armpit area. This trauma caused an injury that has now made it impossible for her to use her arm, which means Perry can no longer use her cane to assist her in walking independently.
Perry is reportedly suing Brown for $75,000 and made the decision to sue Brown himself and Live Nation Entertainment for not better preparing security and setting up the stage in a way that would support his “known propensity for going into the crowd.”
Neither party has released a statement regarding the lawsuit. How do you feel about it? Let us know in the comments below.
