Alleged Dangerous Property Leads To Mans Injuries

May 21, 2015

A trip to the restaurant for lunch or dinner can quickly end up leading to a trip to the doctor’s office or hospital emergency room in the event of a slip-and-fall incident. When a person in Pennsylvania falls on dangerous property that has not been properly kept up by its owner, the individual can easily develop injuries. One person in another state said he recently suffered injuries after slipping at a restaurant and is now suing the establishment.

The alleged incident took place at a bar and grill. The man said that on the restaurant’s floor there was a pool of water. He reportedly stepped into this pool and ended up slipping and falling.

According to the man’s complaint, the company permitted a water leak to continue even after learning about its existence, and the establishment was also improperly managed and operated. He said the restaurant also did not create barriers or post warnings about the leaking-water hazard. He further stated that the restaurant did not inspect the issues resulting in the wet floor, nor did it try to repair these flaws.

The man said the slip-and-fall accident that took place on the dangerous property resulted in physical pain and large medical costs for him. He said he also suffered disability, lost income and mental anguish. He is seeking damages of more than $50,000. If a person suffers injuries in a slip-and-fall incident on another person’s property due to the property owner’s negligence, he or she has the right to use the civil court system to try to hold that property owner accountable in Pennsylvania.

BIG NUMBERS AND DOLLAR SIGNS CAN’T TELL YOU WHETHER A LAW FIRM IS RIGHT FOR YOU

When you’re choosing an advocate to fight for your rights, the first question you want to ask is, “Does this attorney understand someone like me?” and “Have they had success in handling a case like mine?”
