In gambling, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. One Seminole Hard Rock Casino poker player is hoping to cash in on her different sort of loss last October.
In a lawsuit filed in Hillsborough County court in May, Diana Bellerose claims she was struck in the head by a poker-chip drop box when one employee passed the box to another.
Bellerose claims she suffered “severe injury,” as well as disfigurement, disability, hospitalization and lost earnings. She’s now seeking unknown relief.
What’s unknown in this case is whether Bellerose already went home with some booty following her poker catastrophe.
It’s also not clear how a bump on the head causes disfigurement – unless this is a cartoon in which a giant bump emerges from the head and some unknown antagonist then throws a horseshoe at it.
