PITTSBURGH – An improperly-lighted movie theater was the proximate cause behind serious head and neck injuries a plaintiff suffered, says a plaintiff in a new lawsuit in state court.

Mary Ellen Chester of Glassport filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 11 versus American Multi-Cinema, Inc. (doing business as “AMC Mount Lebanon 6”) and Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. (doing business as “The Galleria Of Mount Lebanon”), both of Mount Lebanon.

On Aug. 1, 2016, Chester visited the defendants’ movie theater and her lawsuit says that she was caused to fall due to walkways that were not properly lighted. The plaintiff charges that the defendants failed to inspect, maintain, repair or warn of said dangerous condition and should have known of the potential harm it could present to customers and visitors to the theater, among other charges.

Per the litigation, Chester suffered neck injuries including a disc bulge, aggravation of a pre-existing condition, a closed-head injury, 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.
