Schneider Injury Law Sues national gym company LA Fitness for Attempted Rape in Women’s Locker Room

Schneider Injury Law

Schneider Injury Law is representing Norma Vazquez Pedraza in a lawsuit against Fitness International, LLC, doing business as LA Fitness. The lawsuit, filed in DeKalb County, alleges negligence by LA Fitness leading to a sexual assault.

Atlanta, Georgia Jun 7, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – Background of the Case

On August 25, 2022, Ms. Pedraza was allegedly sexually assaulted in the women’s locker room at the LA Fitness located at 1453 Terrell Mill Road, Marietta, Georgia. Schneider Injury Law asserts that the assault occurred due to inadequate security measures implemented by the defendants.

Details of the Allegations

Schneider Injury Law has outlined several critical security lapses in their complaint, including:

  • Lack of secured doors and monitoring in the women’s locker room.
  • Failure to employ adequate security personnel and surveillance cameras.
  • Insufficient screening and verification of guest passes, allowing unauthorized access by the assailant.
  • Ignoring historical knowledge of similar incidents at other LA Fitness locations.

The complaint argues that these failures created a dangerous environment for gym members, including Ms. Pedraza. Schneider Injury Law alleges that LA Fitness was aware or should have been aware of these security deficiencies and failed to take appropriate actions.

Legal Basis for the Lawsuit

Bethany L. Schneider, founder of Schneider Injury Law, along with co-counsel Jeremy E. Citron of The Citron Law Group, are leading the legal team. They argue that LA Fitness is liable for negligence, negligent security, and negligent training and supervision. Additionally, the lawsuit claims that LA Fitness violated Georgia’s Fair Business Practices Act by misrepresenting the security measures provided to members.

Commitment to Justice and Safety

Schneider Injury Law is dedicated to seeking justice for Ms. Pedraza and ensuring that LA Fitness implements proper security measures to protect its members. The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages for Ms. Pedraza’s physical and emotional injuries and punitive damages for the alleged willful misconduct of LA Fitness.
