BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A just-filed lawsuit in Palm Beach County circuit court alleges that management at LA Fitness on Baracasa Way in Boca Raton knew that exercise equipment was positioned dangerously in the gym but did nothing about it.
The result: a man fell and was critically injured.
“On February 24, 2020, Plaintiff, a membership holder at the premises, intended to utilize a Life Cycle stationary machine when he tripped and fell over a dark, raised threshold that blended with the base of the exercise equipment and the floor. On February 24, 2020, Defendant had knowledge that there were multiple similar incidents in the months that preceded Plaintiff’s injuries.”
