How is the rink responsible for a guest failing to use common sense in recognizing that a skate floor is a highly polished/waxed surface that will be slippery?

I am sorry for the person's pain and suffering, but this seems to be a trivial suit based on the failure to be responsible for one's own actions and choices.

I don't know the entire situation, but keep in mind that the doctors have to be paid, and this guy may not have all the money he needs.

The Health Insurance company may say that the rink is neglectful, and refuse to pay his bills. He may need to sue the rink to have them be declared at fault and pay (or more likely declare bankruptcy), or have the skating rink cleared so his health insurance has to pay.

It is a screwed up world, and the little guy is in it just to get screwed.
