Slip and fall accidents often result in serious injuries and considerable medical expenses for the victim. In some cases, it may be possible to take legal action in order to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, lost earnings and more.
In a recent case, a man sued the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) in Joliet, Illinois after suffering a slip and fall accident. Anthony Arrington Jr. went to the Galowich Family YMCA in June 2016. According to the lawsuit, Arrington slipped and fell because of “the dangerous and unsafe conditions” of the premises.
The complaint accused the YMCA of failing in its duty to ensure the floors were properly mopped and dried. It alleged the facility was responsible for maintaining its surfaces with “reasonable care and caution” so that patrons were not exposed to the risk of slipping and falling.
Arrington allegedly sustained serious injuries that will require long-term medical treatment. The complaint did not specify his injuries. He is seeking damages of at least $50,000.
