When we venture out to the movies it’s usually because we’re seeking escape from our everyday lives in the form of entertainment. We want a thrill to take our mind off our problems, not a spill to add to them. But, believe it or not, slip and fall injuries are actually a common occurrence in movie theaters all around the country, and these unfortunate patrons suffer injuries that can range anywhere from broken bones to permanent paralysis. Are You A Victim Of A Slip And Fall At A Movie Theater?
We need to be aware that accidents can happen at the theater and the liability may not lie with us. For example, it’s the theater’s responsibility to provide three areas of safety for us while we’re visiting their establishment. Failure to live up to this responsibility can result in a lawsuit regarding one of these: 1) a spill which has not been cleaned up 2) improper lighting on the stairs 3) inadequate supervision by the ushers.
Fortunately, civil personal injury laws allow for slip and fall victims to be compensated for their injuries if they were caused by negligence stemming from the actions of movie theater employees, operators, or staff. Remember, it may not be your fault.
