Petco is facing a personal injury lawsuit after a Philadelphia woman allegedly slipped and fell while on its premises.
Dorothy Tangredi filed her lawsuit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 11, naming Petco Animal Supplies Inc. as the sole defendant.
According to Tangredi, on the morning of July 5, 2012, she was shopping at the Petco store at 917 Roosevelt Blvd. in Philadelphia. While at the store, Tangredi allegedly stepped into an accumulation of liquid which caused her to slip and fall. Tanredi says she suffered serious injuries to her hip, back and head when she fell.

Tangredi is seeking an undisclosed amount in damages. She is being represented by attorney Robert S. Miller of Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher and Miller.Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas Case No. 140201196.
