Party City's alleged dangerous property conditions spark lawsuit

A woman in another state recently claimed that she suffered injuries at a party supply store due to the store's negligence. She has therefore filed a lawsuit against the store, alleging that dangerous property conditions caused her injuries. In the same way, anyone in West Virginia who has been hurt due to a business property's carelessness has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.

In the recent out-of-state case, the woman was shopping at Party City in October 2017. All of a sudden, she reportedly stepped on slick material that was present on the store's floor. The woman claimed that she ended up slipping and falling on the slippery material.

The reported fall caused the woman to suffer injuries and disfigurement, along with mental anguish. The woman also allegedly accumulated medical costs and lost wages. According to the lawsuit, Party City caused her injuries because the staff there did not correct the hazardous property conditions at the store on the day of her fall. The store is also blamed for not warning customers about these dangerous conditions. As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking a jury trial along with monetary relief, ranging from $100,000 to $200,000.

Businesses have a duty to ensure that their properties are safe for patrons to use. If they are negligent and thus cause patrons to suffer injuries due to their dangerous property conditions, they may be held liable for these injuries through a premises liability claim. A successfully fought claim in West Virginia might lead to a monetary damage award that may help with addressing medical bills and other related losses, thus enabling the victim to more easily move forward from the ordeal.
