Burger King manager files premises liability suit

A walk on the property of a fast food restaurant in Pennsylvania may unfortunately lead to a hospital trip if a person ends up getting hurt as a result of a slip-and-fall accident. This reportedly took place earlier this year in another state at a Burger King. A man said he was hurt at the restaurant and has filed a premises liability lawsuit, claiming negligence.

According to the lawsuit, the man, who is the manager of the Burger King restaurant, was walking in the drive-thru area of the eatery. All of a sudden, he slipped and ended up falling on some ice and snow in the area. The man claimed that a landscape company was negligent by failing to uphold their responsibility to properly maintain this property during inclement weather. The legal case was recently sent from the county in which it was filed to the county where the incident allegedly took place.

As a result of the fall, the man's fibula and tibia became dislocated. He also suffered internal injuries and a fracture to his right ankle. Not only does the suit levy negligence claims against the landscape company and its owner from the man, but it also levies these claims from the man's wife for the loss of consortium.

Both the man and woman are seeking over $50,000 in damages. If a slip-and-fall accident occurs on a property in Pennsylvania because it was not carefully maintained, the person responsible for keeping up the property may be held financially responsible for any resulting injuries. Monetary relief awarded in a successful premises liability claim may help the injury victim cover his or her medical costs and other financial losses associated with the slip-and-fall.
