The bench — according to the suit — collapsed. The man fell to the ground and sustained serious injuries.

Irwin Seeman is now suing Cost Less Dry Cleaners. He claims the following in the complaint just filed with the Palm Beach County Clerk of Courts:

That on or about December 14, 2020 on which date the Plaintiff was on Defendant’s premises in the capacity of a business invitee and on which date the Plaintiff was requested by a representative of said the business to utilize the fitting room for the purpose of trying on a pair of pants thereafter upon sitting down on a triangular wooden bench within the confines of such room Plaintiff suddenly suffered a violent fall to the floor when the bench unexpectedly gave way.

That the Defendant at all relevant times although owing a duty of due care towards the Plaintiff in his capacity as a business invitee breached such duty by the failure to exercise ordinary care relating to the safety of the bench which Plaintiff utilized consistent with the purpose of utilizing the fitting room.

That as a result of the duty of ordinary care owed to the Plaintiff as a business invitee the Plaintiff suffered and continues to suffer severe injuries to his lower back and legs…
