And behind door #1 ... A BIG FAT LAWSUIT!!!

A 75-year-old woman is suing CBS and the people behind "Let's Make a Deal" ... claiming she went to watch a taping in L.A. ... and walked away with an extremely painful parting gift.

According to the suit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Mary Hutchinson says she was walking through the studio towards her seat in 2010 ... when she placed her hand on a seat for support.

Hutchinson claims the seat was NOT bolted to the ground and it gave way ... causing her to fall and injure herself. Sources close to Hutchinson tell us the woman suffered neck and back injuries ... but no broken bones.

Hutchinson claims CBS and producers created an unsafe and dangerous premises ... and now she's demanding more than $25k in damages.

If it's not a seat where the audience sits she has no case. Most likely it was a reqular folding chair that a security or usher that sits on.

25k is peanuts for CBS. After the settlement & paying her lawyer she'll have enough left over for a Latte.

Americans are disgusting. Money before honesty, loyalty, morals, ethics, or anything else.

Grandma wants some BINGO money.

She probably looked around the room through her SUE HAPPY eyes, spotted the chair that was not bolted down, and faked her own crash test dummy routine.

Will she sue the local grocery store next because the shopping cart has a sticky wheel and it went more to the left, then the right, causing her to bump into the detergent shelf and bruise her hip?

Sue Happy people bug me.
Same with the Mc Donald's hot coffee lady who put it between her legs.

my guess is that this is medical cost related. 25k is not a money grubbing amount, and a one day visit to a hospital for minor injuries, without insurance can easily exceed 25k in america's medical system
