Houlihan's restaurant restroom slip-up leads to negligence lawsuit

By Nicholas Malfitano | Jan 22, 2018


PITTSBURGH – A plaintiff who allegedly slipped and fell on a puddle of liquid soap while inside a Houlihan’s restaurant restroom is now taking the chain to state court for damages.

Cassandra Sproch of Carnegie filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 10 versus Houlihan’s Restaurants, Inc. (doing business as “Houlihan’s”), of Pittsburgh.

Sproch was patronizing a Houlihan’s restaurant in Pittsburgh on Sept. 15, 2017, when she says she slipped on a puddle of liquid soap in the restroom, a circumstance which resulted from that same dangerous condition on the restaurant premises.

The plaintiff charges that Houlihan’s failed to inspect, maintain, repair or warn of said dangerous condition and should have known of the potential harm it could present to customers, among other charges. According to the lawsuit, Sproch suffered serious personal injuries in the accident, including a torn right shoulder, scrapes, lacerations, contusions and bruising.

For negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $35,000, plus all costs and other relief the Court deems just.

The plaintiff is represented by Marc I. Simon of Simon & Simon, in Pittsburgh.
