Theather’s alleged dangerous property conditions lead to suit

| Aug 3, 2017 | Uncategorized

A woman in another state claimed that she suffered an injury in a slip-and-fall accident at a movie theater due to the establishment’s carelessness. As a result, she recently filed a lawsuit against the theater. When a business’ dangerous property conditions in West Virginia cause a guest to be hurt, this guest has the right to take legal action.

In the out-of-state case, the woman was reportedly at the movie theater one day and was trying to go to the bathroom. However, all of a sudden, she allegedly slipped on the establishment’s slick tile. The woman claimed she ended up landing on her back and elbow.

According to the lawsuit, the theater had just finished shampooing its carpet in the restroom area when the slip-and-fall accident occurred. Apparently, some of the company’s cleaning solution had reportedly been left on the tile floor. The plaintiff asserted that the accident caused her to suffer injuries that have led to medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.

The plaintiff claimed that the theater was responsible for her injuries because it did not inspect its premises, nor did it eliminate the dangerous property conditions. The company is also being accused of not warning the woman about the hazardous conditions. She is seeking a jury trial and more than $100,000 in monetary relief as part of her lawsuit. Monetary damages cannot undo the events leading to an injury-causing slip-and-fall accident at a business property in West Virginia or elsewhere, but it may help the victim to feel a sense of justice and thus more easily move forward from the ordeal.
