The suit says, on May 5, 2015,  Goodwin Jackson was exiting a Walmart Store on the defendant’s property and stepped into a pothole in the parking lot, causing her to fall and sustain severe injuries.

Goodwin-Jackson seeks damages of more than $75,000, costs of the action and damages for delay. She is represented by attorney Frank N. Dimeo Jr. of Rosen, Schafer & Dimeo LLP in Philadelphia.
