A New York Gi­ants fan is su­ing her beloved team for in­juries she says she re­ceived when a large photo fell on her in the sta­dium gift shop.

NJ.com re­ports 53-year-old Laura Gal­lagher filed the law­suit against the NFL fran­chise and MetLife Sta­dium last month in Ber­gen County Su­pe­rior Court in New Jersey.

The suit al­leges that Gal­lagher suf­fered mul­ti­ple se­vere in­juries when a framed pic­ture of the team “fell from a shelf and vi­o­lently struck her” as she was brows­ing the Gi­ants Team Store on Sept. 14, 2014.

The woman from Scotch Plains, New Jersey, says her in­juries have be­come per­ma­nent and she suf­fers from “on­go­ing pain, an­guish and emo­tional distress” as a re­sult.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives for the Gi­ants and MetLife Sta­dium de­clined to com­ment.

Gal­lagher seeks com­pen­satory damages.
