Denny's Sued Over Slip and Fall

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

A man from Millstadt, Illinois, who claims he was injured when he fell on a puddle of water on the floor, has recently filed suit against Denny's. According to court documents, the incident occurred on April 5, 2014 when the man was a customer at Denny's in Belleville, Illinois. As a result of the incident, the man alleges that he lost income, incurred medical costs, suffered pain and lost his normal life. The man asserts that Denny's is responsible for causing the fall because the restaurant purportedly attempted to clean the floor by placing water on the floor, but failed to warn of its presence. Furthermore, the suit alleges that Denny's allowed the extremely slippery liquid to accumulate on the floor and subsequently failed to place signs warning of the substance in a place where customers could see the signs. The aggrieved man filed suit on July 2 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Denny's Inc., doing business as Denny's restaurant. The lawsuit asks for more than $50,000 in damages plus costs.
