BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A woman in the north end zone at Highmark Stadium during the Bills’ Jan. 15 game is suing the team after she says the snow — and a touchdown celebration — left her with injuries.

Court papers filed Friday in New York State Supreme Court do not provide specifics of the woman’s injuries.

According to the lawsuit, the woman was standing in the second row of the middle section of the stadium’s north end zone when the Bills scored a fourth quarter touchdown. Fans went wild, but court papers say the woman fell forward into the seats in front of her because of “high-packed” snow and players jumping into the stands.

The suit accuses the Bills of being “negligent, careless and reckless” which caused the woman injury and “resulting damages.”

The Bills’ Wild Card victory over the Steelers on Jan. 15 was played the Monday after several days of lake effect snow that left more than three feet of snow inside the stadium. The Bills paid hundreds of fans to clear the stands for days before the game.
