Velasquez vs. Fitness International, LLC
Alice Chen Smith obtained summary judgment on behalf of their fitness club client.
Plaintiff filed a lawsuit against Defendant for negligence and premises liability. Plaintiff alleged that he slipped and fell in the steam room at the Defendant’s fitness club and that Defendant’s employees attempted to provide assistance after the incident but instead caused further injuries.
Defendant moved for summary judgment on the grounds that no triable issue of fact exists where the express waiver of liability contained in Plaintiff’s Membership Agreement is a complete bar to plaintiff’s actions. The Court granted summary judgment in favor of Defendant.
