Bowling Alley Injury Liability

Each bowling alley accident will have a unique set of circumstances.

Defective Condition – Bowling alleys are action packed. There are plenty of moving parts on a property. If there is a defective part on the property that causes injury you can file a lawsuit. Most bowling alleys have game rooms on the property.

There are games and machines that are interactive. Any defect on the property can create an injury. If the owner or management knew about the defect and did nothing you could hold them liable.

Assault and Battery – Anytime there is competition there is a chance for a fight. Fights have been known to happen at bowling alleys. When you mix in alcohol into the equation there is a higher risk for an assault and battery.

Bowling alleys attract people of all ages. There are often large groups of people. The property needs to provide reasonable safety to their guests. If they do not, they can be held liable.

Wet Floors – A slippery floor can cause injury. A customer walking along and hits a wet floor. It could be from a spilled drink. It could be from a freshly mopped floor. There should be proper signage warning customers of the wet floor. Bathrooms are also places where a floor can get soaked.

Water splashing on the floor is constant. Toilets flushing and sinks in use. Monitoring of the bathroom is important throughout the day. A business can not just leave a wet floor unattended. If they do for an unreasonable amount of time and injury occurs, they could be held liable.

Security Issues – The bowling alley must provide reasonable security for their guests. Making sure that there are no fights is important. Being aware of disturbances and stopping them before they erupt is vital.

Security should be properly trained and alert at all times. The bowling alley environment needs to have proper supervision. This will help to avoid dangerous incidents from occurring.

Alcohol – Bowling alleys will usually provide alcohol. Lounges and bars are set up for guests to enjoy. In Las Vegas and other cities in Nevada there are video gaming machines at the bar. Gaming machines like Poker and Keno are in constant use.

Bowling alleys and too much alcohol can be dangerous. If customers are over served, they are more likely to get in a fight. Bartenders and management have an obligation to not overserve their guests. If they do and an injury occurs, they can be held liable.
