Parx Casino in Bensalem is being sued by a customer who allegedly was injured when she slipped and fell in the women's restroom.


Melvine West of Philadelphia filed her lawsuit on Feb. 12 in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, naming Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment Inc., Parx Casino Design Inc., Philadelphia Park Casino and Racetrack, Greenwood Gaming Association and Bensalem Racing Association as defendants.

West explains in her complaint she was at the Parx Casino, 2999 Street Road in Bensalem, when the incident occurred. West says on Dec. 1, 2012, she was walking in the women's bathroom when she stepped in a puddle of water, slipped and fell. West says Parx was negligent in allowing the dangerous condition to exist in an area frequented by customers.

West goes on to say when she fell she suffered injuries to her shoulder, neck, knees and legs which caused her to suffer in pain. West would like to hold the defendants liable for her injuries and the costs associated with treating them.

West is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.

She is being represented by attorney Attrah B. Feenane and Stephen C. Josel of the law firm Josel and Feenane P.C.

Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Case No. 14020295.
