A Montgomery County man has filed a premises liability lawsuit in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court against Regal Cinemas for injuries he suffered in October 2009 at a Plymouth Meeting movie theater.

Dayrel Dekeyser of Pottstown is alleged to have suffered should detachment, a wrist sprain, lumbar strain and sprain and other unspecified injuries after he slipped and fell on a wet floor at the theater, located at 1011 W. Ridge Pike, according to the lawsuit filed April 29.

The lawsuit says Dekeyser has been, or will be, required to undergo continuous medical attention, and has or may suffer a severe loss of earnings or earning power.

Because of the accident, which the lawsuit contends could have been prevented if proper precautions were taken to ensure someone wouldn’t slip on the floor, Dekeyser has suffered severe physical pain, mental anguish and humiliation, and “may continue to suffer same for an indefinite time in the future,” the complaint states.

The plaintiff has requested a jury trial, and the case is currently awaiting assignment.

Dekeyser is being represented by attorney Scott E. Diamond of the Philadelphia law firm of Clearfield, Kofsky & Penneys.

Named as defendants are Regal Cinemas Inc., based in Knoxville, Tenn., and Regal Entertainment Theater of Conshohocken.

The plaintiff is seeking judgments for damages in an amount in excess of the arbitration limits plus interest and costs, according to the lawsuit.

The case number is 110403374.
