A woman has filed suit against the motorcycle club that she was patronizing when members of the club allegedly swung a paddle at her, causing her injuries.
Dawn N. Voss alleges she was participating in a social gathering at defendant Iron Order Motorcycle Club in Collinsville on Nov. 27, 2012, when numerous members swung a wooden paddle at her, causing her injuries. Many of the members were intoxicated at the time, according to the complaint filed Nov. 26 in Madison County Circuit Court.
Because of the incident, Voss became sick, sore, lame and disordered; suffered extensive injuries to her wrist, arm and body; and lost her earning capacity, the suit states. She also experienced pain and suffering, incurred medical costs, endured disability and disfigurement and lost wages, the complaint says.
In addition to the motorcycle club, Voss names its owner, Randy Frantz, as a defendant, saying he knew numerous members would act in a belligerent manner and could cause her harm.
In her complaint, Voss seeks a judgment of more than $150,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just. Attorney Robert Bas, of Bas Law Office in Edwardsville, is representing Voss.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 14-L-1634.
