“The Steve Harvey Show” Sued By Audience Member
It’s officially time for The Steve Harvey Show to lawyer up. Reportedly, a woman who attended a taping of show as a member of the live audience has hit NBC with a lawsuit. Sandra Munoz claims she fell from a stairway aisle because it failed to install full-length hand rails in its studio.
Munoz filed the lawsuit this week, explaining that she fell to the ground from the stairway after attending a Feb. 17, 2016, taping of Harvey’s daytime television show at the NBC Tower in Chicago.
She says she was assigned a seat in an elevated area and that the producers created a “dangerous condition” and “unreasonable risk of harm” by failing to install full-length handrails. She also claims no staff warned her that the stair aisle was unsafe, or supervised audience members as they came to and from the studio.
Munoz seeks $50,000 in damages on a claim of negligence to cover,
lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of a normal life, and physical and emotional trauma, all of which are permanent.
