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.
