After experiencing a slip-and-fall accident in Pennsylvania, a person's life has the potential to change dramatically. For instance, the person may face a stay in the hospital, numerous surgeries or even extensive rehabilitation. One person in another state recently filed a premises liability suit after reportedly slipping and falling on dangerous property.
In the out-of-state case, the individual was visiting a casino. He said he was going to the buffet inside the casino when he slipped and fell on liquid pooled on the floor near the buffet. The man said he suffered abrasions and contusions on his legs and arms.
According to his complaint, the man also suffered numerous bruises to his abdomen and chest, as well as both back and neck sprains. The injuries also allegedly caused shock and persistent headaches. He has accused the casino of not preventing a hazardous condition and not ensuring that visitors were in a safe environment. The man said the facility also did not clean up the spill in a reasonable amount of time, did not properly examine the location of the spill and did not warn customers of the hazardous condition.
In light of his injuries, the man is pursuing damages for the loss of wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. He is also seeking damages for a drop in his future income, mental agony, disabilities, loss of the enjoyment of life, rehabilitation and emotional turmoil. Any person who is responsible for maintaining a property but fails to do so in Pennsylvania may be held financially responsible for any injuries that occur on the dangerous property.
