    Al Sharpton’s daughter reportedly sues NYC for $5M after spraining ankle


    Al Sharpton's daughter reportedly is suing New York City for $5 million after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle.

    According to the New York Post, Dominique Sharpton, 28, says in court records she was "severely injured, bruised and wounded" after tripping on uneven pavement in downtown Manhattan in October.

    Sharpton says she still suffers from the injury, the Post reported.

    She reportedly was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the fall, but participated in a National Action Network March in December and was pictured climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.

    Al Sharpton’s daughter sues city for $5M after spraining ankle

    [​IMG]
    She learned at the feet of a master.

    Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle, court records show.

    Dominique Sharpton, 28, says she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown last year, according to a lawsuit.

    Currently on vacation in Bali, the membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.

    “I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.

    She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.

    And despite claiming “permanent physical pain” in a breathless notice of claim, there are social-media shots of her in high heels, and another of her climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.

    The legal shakedown is right out of her dad’s pay-to-playbook.

    Al Sharpton has used threats of protests and boycotts against large companies as a way to generate huge corporate donations, his critics charge.

    Everyone from McDonald’s, Verizon, Macy’s, General Motors, Chrysler and Pfizer have forked over cash to the elder Sharpton.

    The Rev on Saturday said he didn’t know the status of his daughter’s legal claim. “She’s 29 years old. Why would she have to talk to me about that?” he said of Dominique, whose mother is Sharpton’s ex-wife, Kathy. “I just know that she was hurt and that she got a lawyer and she’s a grown woman. [Where] she goes from there, I have no idea.”

    Broken sidewalks and rough pavement can be a windfall for pedestrians. One plaintiff, Denise Giles, snagged a cool $2.25 million settlement seven years after suing the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp. for failing to fix a broken sidewalk outside one of its clinics. Giles claimed she needed ankle surgery as a result of her fall.

    Her payout was one of 885, or $60 million worth, that the city made over 22 months for defective sidewalks.

    Dominique Sharpton claims she fell in a crosswalk, which would make hers a “defective roadway” claim. The city received 774 such claims in the 2014 fiscal year alone.

    She was left with “internal and external injuries to the whole body, lower and upper limbs, the full extent of which are unknown, permanent pain and mental anguish,” she alleges.

    The younger Sharpton is seeking the damages for “loss of quality of life, future pain and suffering, future medical bills, [and] future diminution of income,” according to court papers.

    Sharpton’s lawyer, John Elefterakis, said she had “multiple ligament and tendon tears” and “has not had any involvement in selecting a figure that would be fair and adequate compensation for her pain and suffering. The number was selected by my firm and is meant as a safeguard for Ms. Sharpton in a worst-case scenario.”

    If she scores her legal windfall, she might want to give her dad a handout; he reportedly owes $4.5 million in unpaid taxes.

    If Sharpton gets any cash out of this prepare for Beth to have a little spill, Howard will want additional pain and suffering for her since it hurts more when your ankle is the size of a side of beef.

    Cities here in Mass have a cap on damages for defects in a public way of $5000. Or at least they did years ago

    A Stern-related story as it involves a lawsuit and a sprained ankle - was young Ms. Sharpton also trying to get out of attending a funeral?

    In any lawsuit involving the city of New York, the city requires that the injured person file a notice of claim with the city within 90 days of the accident. The notice of claim gives the city a "head's up" so that it can determine which city agency is responsible and begin to look for records. If the notice of claim is not filed within 90 days of the accident and no extension was granted, then regardless of the merits of your case, you will not be able to sue the city. With "pothole" cases, the city throws up another barrier by also requiring the injured party to present proof that the city had actual written notice of the existence of the specific defective condition no less than 15 days before the accident.

    If there was a real interest in stopping most of the frivolous suits, NYS can pass a law moving the litigation against the city into the NYS Court of Claims, where there is only a judge.

    The prospect of a jury trial led by white liberals and minorities frightens the city into settling these suits to the tune of $400-$500M a year.
