Premises Liability Claim Filed Following Alleged Slip And Fall

February 19, 2016

A slip-and-fall accident in Pennsylvania may unfortunately result in injuries whose effects are long lasting. One man in a recent out-of-state case reported that he suffered injuries on dangerous property belonging to a hotel casino. The man has decided to file a premises liability lawsuit against the company.

Based on the complaint, the man was at the hotel casino one day and suddenly slipped on a patch of ice in the casino parking lot. The man claimed that the casino failed to maintain a safe walkway for customers. As a result of his fall, the man reportedly suffered permanent injuries, including limited motion in the left shoulder due to a torn rotator cuff.

The complaint alleges that his injuries decreased his ability to work. He is also allegedly no longer able to enjoy a normal life. Furthermore, the man incurred medical expenses following the reported fall. He is seeking a jury trial along with compensation, the amount of which will be decided at trial.

When businesses in Pennsylvania are negligent and do not keep their properties clean and safe for customers, their customers could end up getting injured in slip-and-fall accidents. These customers have the right to seek full financial accountability from the businesses involved. They may choose to file premises liability claims, pursuing the reimbursement of damages stemming from their accidents. No amount of money can undo the events that led to the victims’ injuries; however, financial restitution from a successfully navigated premises liability claim, based upon a showing of negligence, may result in an award of monetary relief, allowing the victim to move forward from the incident more easily.
