Our Detroit slip and fall accident lawyers recently received a $365,000.00
jury verdict for a 69-year old woman who slipped and fell on a bathroom
floor in the AMC Theatre located at Great Lakes Crossing Mall in Auburn
Our client was going to see a movie at the theatre with her grandchildren.
She walked into the women's restroom where she fell due to the bathroom
floor being wet. As a result of the fall, she broke her hip and had to
undergo hip replacement surgery.
Our Auburn Hills slip and fall attorneys filed the lawsuit in the Oakland
County Circuit Court against the AMC Theatre for their failure to keep
the premises safe from harm.
The floor was wet due to a customer dropping their soda drink on the floor.
A theatre employee went to clean up the spill, however she used a dry
mop and left the floor wet. This happened about a half hour prior to our
client walking into the bathroom. The employee also failed to put up "Caution
Wet Floor" sign in the bathroom. The employee told her supervisor
she could not find the sign, left as her shift had ended, and the supervisor
failed to go look for the sign and put it up in the women's bathroom.
The AMC Theatre denied responsibility, offering a small settlement, however
our lawyers were able to prove that they were in fact at fault and cause
for her injury. The Oakland County Jury awarded her $365,000.00 for her
injuries and pain and suffering.
