Woman sues Illinois gym over son’s head injury

Woman sues Illinois gym over son’s head injury

Date: August 15, 2014

A woman filed suit on July 22 in Cook County Circuit Court against Flying High Gymnastics Inc. after her son reportedly suffered injuries to his head and forehead. The suit claims that the woman’s minor son suffered the injuries after tripping on a piece of jagged metal at the facility.

The complaint alleges that he owner of the gym was negligent in allowing an unsafe condition to remain inside of the gym and that the owner did nothing to warn those on the premises of the dangerous conditions. The woman is asking for $50,000 in damages in addition to other costs.

In a case where an individual is injured on someone else’s property, the owner of that property may be liable for the cost of treating such injuries. If a piece of debris created unsafe conditions, the owner of the facility had a duty to remove the debris or at least warn those in the facility that a dangerous condition existed. When a minor suffers injuries due to the negligence of a property owner, the parents or guardians of that minor may file a lawsuit on their behalf.

Consulting with a personal injury attorney may of benefit for those seeking compensation from a negligent property owner. If a case is settled out of court, a lengthy trial may not be needed. However, in some instances, a settlement may not be reached with the liable parties, and an attorney might be able to create a strong case by gathering evidence like photos of the dangerous conditions and witness accounts of the incident.
