PHILADELPHIA – A Chicago woman and university student allegedly injured nearly two years ago by falling glass in her bathroom has initiated legal action against the business entities she feels are responsible for her injuries.
Sydni Barclay filed suit on Jan. 18 in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, against Beech Interplex, Inc. of Philadelphia and the Redevelopment Authority of Philadelphia, plus Century Campus Housing Management, CCHM, Inc. and CCHM Management Holdings, all of Houston.
“On or about Feb. 26, 2015, plaintiff Sydni Barclay, a student at Temple University, was lawfully residing as a tenant at The Edge, a building located at 1601 North 15th Street in Unit 1219 BC, when the glass mirror of her bathroom medicine chest broke without warning, with the pieces of glass being released from the frame and falling into the face of the plaintiff,” the suit says. “Due to its dangerous and defective condition, as a result, plaintiff sustained all the damages and injuries alleged herein.”
Barclay says the defendants should have known of this condition and repaired it, and that their failure to do so resulted in her accident. Barclay allegedly suffered severe lacerations to her face from the falling glass.
The plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus interest and attorney’s fees.
The plaintiff is represented by Richard A. Stoloff, in Linwood, N.J.
