Casino Gambler Seeks $30k For Falling Off Chair

Casino Gambler Seeks $30k For Falling Off ChairA Pennsylvania man is seeking thousands of dollars in compensation after falling off his chair while playing the slots at the Parx Casino in Bensalem.
The accident occurred on Christmas Day 2009, and was allegedly caused by a faulty chair provided by the casino coming apart underneath Mr Tillis Davis. According to court documents, the 56 year-old man then apparently suffered “several and debilitating personal injuries on or about the entire head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs, torso and extremities” from the fall.
In addition to Mr Tillis Davis’ suing the Parx Casino and chair manufacturer Majestic Industries for his injuries,  Mr Davis’ wife, Denise, has also brought a lawsuit against them, claiming she has been “deprived of the society, companionship, services and assistance of her husband” because of the accident.
On February 12th this year, an arbitration suggested the casino paid $30,000 in compensation to the couple, but this was flatly rejected by Parx. The case is now expected to go to court in May and last around three days. In the meantime, Parx Casino and the chair maker have denied any negligence in the case.
Commenting on the case, Mr Davis’ attorney Robert Price, said a video recording clearly shows the chair collapsing and his client falling out. Regarding the sum claimed, Price explained: “A good portion of this will go toward paying my client’s medical bills. He had to go through about three to four months of physical therapy.”
The business originally opened in 1974 and was called the Keystone Racetrack. It was then awarded a permanent casino license in 2006, before changing its name to Parx in 2009. The casino has since gone on to become one of Pennsylvania’s top-grossing casinos, and last year generated $560 million in revenue.
