PRINCETON – A Mercer County man says injuries he suffered
from slipping on a puddle of water at a restaurant caused him to undergo more than a dozen sessions of physical therapy.
Alan Flanery filed a lawsuit May 5 in Mercer Circuit Court
against Mountain Star LLC, alleging negligence and premises liability.
According to the complaint, Flanery slipped and fell on a
puddle of water in the men’s room of a Hardee’s Restaurant on Stafford Drive in
Princeton on Aug. 24, 2015. The suit says Mountain Star, the store’s owner, is
liable for the alleged unsafe conditions in the restaurant, which caused Flanery
to sprain his shoulder and right hip in the fall.
Flanery seeks a jury trial, reimbursement for medical
expenses topping $6,000, plus interest and compensation for emotional distress.
He is represented by attorney Mark E. Wills of the Wills Law Office in
Mercer Circuit Court Case number 16-C-145-D3
