A paintball player claims he fell on a metal stake and blames the owners of the recreational facility where he was playing for the injury he suffered.
Leonel Vazquez sustained a "really severe gash on his leg," said his attorney, David Heyer of Chicago.
Vazquez was playing in a paintball game at CPX Sports in June when he "landed on a metal stake sticking out of the ground," according to a lawsuit filed on his behalf by Heyer at the Will County Courthouse.
Heyer said Vazquez is in his 20s and lives somewhere in DuPage County.
The lawsuit demands a judgment against CPX Sports in excess of $50,000.
CPX Sports operates about 20 different paintball fields on its 150-acre complex. The Schweitzer Road facility also rents and sells paintball equipment.
