Premises Liability Claim Filed Against Bowling Alley

December 18, 2015

Slipping and falling may lead to major injuries, which can prevent a person in Pennsylvania from leading a normal life. In one recent out-of-state case, a woman claimed that she slipped and fell at a bowling alley due to the business’s negligence. She has filed a premises liability claim against the company.

The woman said she was at the bowling alley on a recent Thursday and ended up slipping and falling on a substance on the floor. The incident occurred as she was going toward a bowling lane. The woman said the substance on which she slipped was oil.

The woman alleged that the bowling alley was negligent because it did warn her about the establishment’s slippery floor. The company is also accused of not exercising a reasonable degree of care in maintaining its premises. However, the company said the woman’s injuries were self-inflicted because she did not cautiously keep a lookout.

As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking damages totaling over $50,000. If a person in Pennsylvania slips and falls on property that his not been appropriately maintained, he or she may face hefty medical bills on top of being unable to work and earn a living for a period of time. Fortunately, this individual has the right to seek to hold the business owner accountable through the civil court system. A successfully fought premises liability case, based upon a showing of negligence, could result in compensation, which may help the injured party to move forward from the life-altering incident.
