Hip Fracture on Wet Dance Floor
Our client, a 49-year-old resident of Brooklyn, New York, was in Chicago attending his niece’s Bat Mitzvah. After walking across the dance floor, he slipped and fell on a wet substance. He fractured his left hip which required surgical intervention. The dance floor was wet because the staff had been notified of a spill on the dance floor, which they attempted to clean up but did not complete the task properly, and they failed to place cones or signs on the floor where the spill occurred. Our client made a good recovery after hip surgery and returned to New York.
