Al Sharpton’s Daughter Sues NYC for $5 Million over Ankle Sprain


sharptonThe Rev. Al Sharpton’s 28-year-old daughter, Dominique Sharpton, is suing New York City for $5 million over a sprained ankle she suffered while walking  through a crosswalk, the New York Post reports.

The October 2 fall left her “severely injured, bruised and wounded,” according to court documents, and she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”

Sharpton suffered “internal and external injuries to the whole body, lower and upper limbs, the full extent of which are unknown, permanent pain and mental anguish,” her court filing continues, and she is seeking damages for “loss of quality of life, future pain and suffering, future medical bills, [and] future diminution of income.”

The Post notes that, though Sharpton was seen walking in a boot for several weeks after the accident, she can also be seen at about the same time in pictures on social media wearing high heals and climbing a ladder to put an angel on top of a Christmas tree.

She also attended a National Action Network Justice for All march in Washington, D.C., and for a New Year’s Eve trip to Miami Beach around the same time.

In an Instagram post just after her accident, Sharpton wrote, “I sprained my ankle real bad lol.”

Al Sharpton was asked about the case, responding, “She’s 29 years old. Why would she have to talk to me about that? I just know that she was hurt and that she got a lawyer and she’s a grown woman. [Where] she goes from there, I have no idea.”

  1. Sold! The crime is her own fault! What a scoffer in a sampled cry of poor living! I could think she could give back in good spirit instead of claiming that the world owes her a free awe of her own ordeal. The child has no common sense.

  2. Why not just ask her daddy for some of his race racket money! Instead of draining money from the city. That money I’m sure would help harlem a lot more then her!
