Woman Hit in Head by Drone Settles Lawsuit with Event-Planning Company

A woman who suffered a head injury when she was hit by a drone has reached a settlement with a USC fraternity chapter and an event-planning company, which hired the operator of the drone to photograph attendees at a 2015 frat party.

Perfect Event was hired to produce the party and employed the operator of the drone, which was taking photographs of those present, according to the suit.

Fifteen to twenty minutes after Pituch, the plaintiff, arrived, a “heavy object fell on (her) head, causing her to stumble forward.” Pituch’s “head immediately began to bleed vigorously from her wounds.” The heavy object was identified to be the drone.

Pituch said she suffered injuries to the back of her head, forehead and left eye, and also felt dizzy and became disoriented after the blow. Moreover, Pituch has permanent scarring on her head and forehead, the suit stated. As a result of the injury, her ability to focus on schoolwork has been “compromised,” and she still experiences headaches that affect her concentration, according to the complaint.
