Sneed|Mitchell Represents Client Injured In AMC Cinemas Woodlands - May 29, 2019
Litigation is ramping up in case against the theater company after our client suffered a trip and fall injury while attempting to get to his seat. Our client tripped over one of the electric recliners that was broken and unable to return to its default position. Evidence suggests that AMC was aware of hazard for an extended time but failed to provide adequate warning signs or similar to prevent injuries such as our clients.
How Sneed|Mitchell Proves Negligence Against A Movie Theater –
There are several elements which need to be shown in the court of law to prove your case;

The biggest risk of liability that movie theaters face is slip and fall injuries. If you have ever been inside of a movie theater, you’ll know that moviegoers are among the most careless and messiest of all customers. Spilling food and soda just about in every available surface: the floors, stairs, aisles, and bathrooms. When spills occur, it is up to the movie theater to respond quickly and take care of the mess or put up signs to deter any accidents from occurring.
If the movie theater is aware that a spill has occurred and does not act to address the spill and make the area safe for all customers, then they have acted negligently. If the movie theater was unaware of the spill, it is up to you to prove that the movie theater should have reasonably known about the spill and taken action to clean the spill.
