A settlement has been reached between a West Palm Beach strip club and a man who was smacked in the eye by a stripper’s platform shoe with a metal heel. The stripper was walking on the bar when she spun around and her heel struck a patron, breaking bones around his eye and in his nose, resulting in permanent double vision and frequent dizziness.
The patron’s attorney said: “…we feel the $650,000 settlement goes to show that this was a serious case with serious injuries.”
Hardly the first strip club injury, in New York, a man sued after a stripper giving him a lap dance swiveled and smacked him in the face with her shoe. A Broward man sued after a woman’s stiletto flew off during a pole dance, shattering a mirror and cutting him.
The Sun-Sentinel reports that the patron is expecting another round of litigation, presuming that the nightclub’s insurance will not simply pay the judgment.
A manager at the club would not comment whether dancers are still allowed to shimmy on the bar.
