STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – A father alleges his son’s leg was broken in a karate class in Feb. 2018 is suing the school.
A father sued the school and his son’s training partner, alleging they “negligently” caused his son’s injury.
The suit, filed in state Supreme Court, St. George, seeks unspecified monetary damages.
According to a civil complaint, the plaintiff, a resident listed as “K.B.,” was practicing with another student identified only as “D.D.”
The complaint contends the plaintiff asked the other boy to “stop using a karate move,” but D.D. failed to listen to or hear him.
As a result, D.D. fractured the plaintiff’s leg, even though it should have been apparent he was hurting his partner, said the complaint.
The complaint alleges loud music inside the school distracted the defendant, and instructors didn’t supervise the boys properly.
The suit names the corporate name of the school, as a defendant, along with the workout partner through his mother.
The plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.
