PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia couple believes Comcast is responsible for the total loss of their vehicle, sustained in an automobile accident last February in the Pennsport section of the city.
On May 18, Angelica Boettcher and Jeffrey Boettcher filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas versus Comcast Corporation, also of Philadelphia.
On Feb. 22, Angelica was carefully and legally operating a 2006 Honda Pilot northbound at the intersection of Third & Wharton Streets in Philadelphia, when James Earl Anthony Williams, in the employ of Comcast, found himself operating the company’s vehicle eastbound on Wharton Street.
According to the lawsuit, Williams entered the intersection by negligently failing to stop for the posted stop sign, causing a collision with Angelica’s vehicle. The suit avers this is the fault of Comcast through its employee and driver Williams, resulting in heavy damage and total loss to Angelica’s vehicle. As a result, Angelica had to expend unforeseen amounts of money for towing fees, storage fees and funds for the use of a rental vehicle.
For counts of negligence on the part of Williams and respondeat superior liability on the part of Comcast, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus interest, costs, fees and other relief the Court deems just and proper in this matter.
The plaintiff is represented by Michael L. Daiello of Daiello Law, in Philadelphia.
