This includes anything from injuries and treatment to who might be liable for the incident or even what was on the floor. Slip and fall injuries are not all created equal and there is usually some investigation into who was negligent and who is responsible. Hopefully after reading, you will be a bit more prepared if the time were to come that you are involved in a slip and fall accident.
You may be seriously injured from a fall at a movie theatre.
Many different injuries can occur at a movie theater. Dark theaters in conjunction with pushy people and discarded trash on the floor could be a recipe for bad news. You might order popcorn and when you go to add delicious butter to it someone else has made a mess and decided they didn’t want to clean it up. The next thing you know you’ve slipped on a buttery floor and you’re injured. Injuries could include brain injuries, sprains, broken bones and could be serious and life changing. While you aren’t able to predict when there will be an issue or an accident, there are some things that you are able to keep an eye out for to reduce the likelihood of an accident. Being mindful of any loose handrails, dark hallway lighting, or more often than not, a slippery floor. Always watch where you are going.
It may not be your fault you fell at a movie theatre.
Just because you slip and fall in a movie theater does not always mean you are entitled to compensation. Typically, it is the duty of the injured to prove their case and prove that the movie theater was negligent in some way. Most of the time the negligent party has to be aware of the issue beforehand and prove that the theater knew about the spill or the issue and did nothing to make it safer for patrons. Generally, it is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure the safety of their patrons. Always keep any documentation related to the accident. This includes all medical billing and records, any accident reports, or scheduled meetings. This will help ensure that the movie theater will be held accountable for their negligence.
