Philadelphia Movie Theater Accident
Attorney

When you purchase tickets at a movie theater to see a new film on the big screen, getting injured is the last thing you expect. You expect to have lots of fun, eat loads of popcorn, and the worst thing that will happen to you is holding in your pee to wait until the movie credits roll so that you can go use the restroom. Or so you think…

In reality, there are many things that can go wrong at a movie theater. From slip and fall accidents in the restroom to trip and fall accidents caused by loose carpeting in the cinema hall. From being injured by a falling object or decoration in the lobby or getting injured by a faulty seat to being attacked by someone in a poorly lit parking lot… “Movie theater accidents do happen, and more often than not, the injured party is entitled to recover damages,” says our Philadelphia movie theater accident attorney at Dan Doyle Law Group.

Although the process of seeking compensation for your injury at a movie theater is hardly as exciting as watching a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, insurance companies will most likely make you jump through quite a few hoops to prove your eligibility for recovering damages.

Insurance companies may be your main enemy here

Unfortunately, insurance companies are not interested in providing the full payment on your personal injury claim regardless of whether you sustain an injury in a car accident, apartment complex accident, or movie theater accident. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to deny claims or minimize the settlement in violation of your right to recover the full amount of money to cover your damages.

Our experienced movie theater accident attorney in Philadelphia explains that insurance companies treat you as nothing more than their walking profit. You pay them for your insurance in full, while they are looking for ways to pay you as little as possible.

A movie theater’s liability for your injury

That’s why it is so important to understand your legal rights when filing a personal injury claim against a movie theater. Under Pennsylvania law, movie theaters have a duty to keep their properties in a safe condition free of any unreasonable hazards. If you were injured by a reasonably foreseeable condition on the property, you may be entitled to sue the owner of the movie theater for his or her failure to prevent the accident.

In fact, movie theaters have a duty to inspect and maintain their property in a safe and sanitary condition not only in the cinema hall, but also the lobby, parking lot, restroom, walkways, and all other areas of the property.

Some of the most common causes of movie theater injuries include but are not limited to:

Slip and fall accidents caused by wet and slippery floors
Trip and fall accidents caused by obstacles on the floor or damaged flooring
Elevator and escalator accidents caused by the property owner’s failure to maintain the elevator and escalator in a safe condition
Parking lot accidents
Food poisoning caused by selling or serving spoiled, expired, or otherwise unsafe foods and drinks
Falling objects and
Inadequate security measures and poorly lit areas
