A Philadelphia resident is suing various businesses following an injury she claims to have suffered after tripping on a pothole.
Sheila Burke filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 12, naming Montgomeryville Associates Inc. and various other business as defendants.
According to her filing, Burke was walking out of the Montgomery Mall at 230 Montgomery Mall, in North Wales, when she was injured. Burke says she was walking in a designated pedestrian walkway on April 27, 2012, when she stepped into a pothole or onto uneven and defective concrete, causing her to fall.
Burke goes on to say the parking lot was negligently maintained and in a defective condition which caused her to trip and fall. Burke claims she sustained serious injuries from her fall and now seeks to hold the defendants liable.
Burke is seeking more than $50,000 in damages. She is being represented by attorney Attrah B. Feenane and Stephen C. Josel of the law firm Josel and Feenane P.C.Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Case No. 14020197.
