MEDIA — A business invitee is suing Harrah's Philadelphia Casino & Racetrack and others, citing alleged negligence.

John Michalski filed a complaint on Sept. 24 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants alleging that they failed to properly maintain the men's restroom area near the Miens Noddles Restaurant.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 21 he was a valid diamond card holder of defendant's casino when he slipped and fell in the men's restroom due to an accumulation of murky watery liquid on the floor. 

He allegedly sustained serious injuries, including but not limited to cervical sprain and strain, lumbar sprain and strain, thoracic sprain and strain, and a fracture to the left clevicle that required surgical intervention. The plaintiff holds Harrah's Philadelphia Casino & Racetrack and others responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to prevent the accumulation of the liquid in the men's restroom and failed to give adequate warning of the existing danger.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus interest, costs, attorney's fees and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Vincent Bonaventura Jr. of Law Offices of Stephen W. Bruccoleri in Philadelphia.

The Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Case No. is 18-7599.
