Model sues Playboy after injuring knee during trampoline photoshoot
London: A model has sued Playboy after she suffered a knee injury during a trampoline photoshoot at the mansion.
Model Denise Underhill was requested to jump on a trampoline in order for photographs to be taken of her, and she suffered a devastating knee injury during the shoot back in 2009.
Underhill, who may have modelled under a different name, filed a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court last month.
According to TMZ.com, in the lawsuit she claims that during the jumping session, she tore the meniscus in her right knee, and instead of proper medical assistance, she was merely given crutches by staff at the mansion and sent on her way.
“There were no warning signs posted, as to the dangers posed by the use of the equipment,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying in the documents.
She is asking for more than 25,000 dollars, and claims the injury required surgery.
