A 69-year-old grandmother is suing NBCUniversal Media LLC, alleging she was hurt when a divider pole fell on her right hand while she was waiting in line with her grandson for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at Universal Studios in 2021.
Elizabeth Moore’s Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit alleges negligence and seeks unspecified damages. An NBCUniversal Media representative could not be immediately reached for comment on the suit brought Friday.
Moore, who lives northeast of Sacramento in Loomis, was standing in line for the ride on June 6 with her grandson when a divider pole fell over and struck her right hand without warning, the suit alleges.
Moore suffered severe injuries that she believes will continue to cause her severe pain and discomfort in the future, the suit states.
NBCUniversal Media knew or should have known that the poles were not properly secured and posed a danger to its customers, but did not correct the problem, the suit claims.
