YMCA Sued Over Allegedly Providing Defective Roller Skates

YMCA Sued Over Allegedly Providing Defective Roller SkatesAn Illinois doctor who allegedly sustained injuries following a fall seeks damages from the Edwardsville YMCA, claiming that the organization provided him with defective roller skates during a party he was attending for his daughter at the facility.

Peter Kim of Highland claims that he acquired a pair of roller skates at the YMCA to participate in his daughter’s roller skating party, according to the St. Clair Record. While he was skating around the rink, one of the skates locked and caused Kim to fall, the personal injury lawsuit states.

Kim is represented by a personal injury attorney, and seeks at least $50,000 in damages for lost income, medical expenses and court costs, according to the news source. He reportedly holds the YMCA responsible for the incident, as it allegedly provided him with defective skates.

Another personal injury lawsuit involving a fall has been filed against an Illinois YMCA recently. The Record previously reported that a Cahokia man filed suit against the Belleville YMCA, claiming it did not properly clean the area before letting him play racquetball at the facility. He allegedly slipped on a piece of clothing left on the floor and sustained a wrist fracture.
