Theater's alleged dangerous property conditions cause injury

A woman in another state has decided to file a lawsuit against a theater after she allegedly suffered an injury there. The woman claimed in her premises liability suit alleging dangerous property conditions that the theater did not take enough to measures to prevent injuries. Any person in West Virginia who is injured on a business property due to the owner's negligence has the right to seek to hold the property owner accountable through the civil court system.

The woman in her complaint claimed that she tripped at the theater one day and ended up falling. The fall allegedly led her to suffer injuries. She claimed that the theater did not keep its sidewalk in a reasonable condition for its visitors.

According to the woman's complaint, the theater should have fixed the sidewalk, which was uneven at the time of her fall. In addition, the property owner should have provided enough warning to pedestrians who were using the sidewalk. She is seeking a judgment in an amount that surpasses the court's jurisdictional limits.

When business owners in the state of West Virginia do not maintain their properties in safe conditions for their patrons, they may be held liable for any injuries that occur on their properties as a result. The injured parties may choose to file premises liability claims, seeking damages. A monetary award in a case that is fought victoriously may help the victim to cover his or her medical costs, the loss of wages and other expenses stemming from the dangerous property conditions.
