Kamloops man launches lawsuit against Cineplex, mall after falling down snow-covered, icy steps

November 26, 2019 - 5:30 PM

A Kamloops man has filed a notice of claim against Cineplex and the Aberdeen Mall after he says he slipped and fell while exiting the theatre earlier this year.

The plaintiff, Ajay Borasi, says he slipped and fell on the stairway located outside of the movie theatre doors as a result of snow and ice that had accumulated on the stairs in February, according to the notice of claim.

Borasi says the slip and fall was caused by the negligence of the defendants, both Cineplex and Aberdeen Mall. Borasi claims he has suffered physical injuries to his back, hip, wrist, and hand.

The injuries he allegedly sustained have caused him pain, loss of enjoyment of life, discomfort, loss of income, personality change, nervous discomfort, difficulty sleeping, lack of coordination, lack of strength, anxiety, fatigue, inconvenience and emotional loss, according to the notice of claim.

As a result, Borasi is seeking general damages, ‘in trust’ claim on behalf of third parties for past and future services, special damages, and past and future costs of healthcare, among other things.

The notice of claim states the defendants failed to “take any care or in the alternative, any reasonable care to ensure the plaintiff would be reasonably safe in using the premises and in particular the stairs.”

The claim also states the defendants “exposed the plaintiff to a risk of damage, injury from slippery and snow-covered stairs which the defendants knew or ought to have known.”

None of the allegations have been proven yet in court.

The defendants have not yet filed a response to the claim.
