Pole dancer wins damages

A pole dancer who suffered personal injuries whilst performing on stage has had her compensation claim for damages upheld.

The woman was left with back and neck injuries after dancing at a club in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in December 2001 and subsequently decided to make a work injury compensation claim.

When the case came to court her employer denied he had been aware of the dancer's injuries despite the fact that she insisted she had reported them. Medical records also showed that the woman had undergone surgery for a herniated spinal disc shortly after the work accident occurred.

In a 2006 court case the pole dancer was awarded personal injury compensation totalling almost £4,000 but her employers appealed against the ruling.

A judge recently threw out the compensation claim appeal, however, and also decided to add an extra five percent to the exotic dancer's damages.
