Slip and fall accidents can be treacherous, resulting in serious injury for the victim. Canadian tennis star, Eugenie Bouchard, filed a lawsuit recently stating that the United States Tennis Association (USTA) is responsible for a serious head injuryshe sustained after she slipped and fell in the women’s locker room. According to Bouchard, the injury has caused her to withdraw from several tournaments and her national ranking has dropped from number five to 13.
The incident occurred after defeating Dominika Cibulkova and playing in a mixed doubles match during the U.S. Open. After entering the locker room in the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York, Bouchard slipped on the floor, hitting her head on the ground, resulting in a concussion and a serious head injury.
The lawsuit alleges that there was a slippery substance on the floor, which caused her to fall. Bouchard claims that her fall could have been avoided if the USTA kept the locker room conditions clean and safe. She claims that her injuries were the result of carelessness and negligence on the part the USTA.
