Legal Question

Asked on: 5/15/13, 4:13 am

I was bowling with my family and boyfriend on May 3rd for a Humane Society fundraiser. My mom noticed the lanes were sticky, and she kept having issues with her feet getting stuck while she went up to the lane. I spoke with a gentleman at the front desk about the issue of sticky lanes. He said that it was the humidity. I said okay, and left it at that. A few minutes later, antoher gentleman came down to our lane, said he heard we had a concern with sticky lanes, and wiped them down with rubbing alcohol (or something that looked really close to it). I was the next person up to bowl after he wiped down the lanes. I do not know if I slipped, or got stuck, but I feel down...HARD. I landed on my knees, and my body twisted as I also landed on my right shoulder (while still having a 14 pound ball in my hand with the momentum of throwing it down the lane). My shoulder hurt horribly the next day (and hasn't felt better since). I went to the Urgent Care Center on May 4th (a day after it happened). The doctor did some x-rays on my shoulder and determined that it was not broke but was sprained really bad. I had a significant loss of motion in my arm. It still hurts horribly today (May 15th) and I still cannot move it certain ways without a horrible pain shooting down my arm which brings me to tears. My primary care doctor has referred me to a pain clinic for my shoulder, which I am still waiting for the approval process to be completed. I'm not sure if I have a case, or not, as I do not know what the liability of a bowling alley really is.
