PHILADELPHIA – A Mechanicsburg truck driver is suing the U.S. Postal Service over negligence allegations after a fall.
Glenn Willis filed a complaint on Dec. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against 9250 Ashton Road Inc. and the United States of America alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Willis was on the premises of 9520 Ashton Road, which is leased by USPS, on Dec. 21, 2013, to deliver a holiday rush shipment to the venue. He used the exit designed for him to use to leave when he allegedly slipped and fell on the unlit landing and six steps. He was injured to such an extent that it was necessary to have medical procedures in order to treat the injuries, the complaint states. Willis is suing the defendant for its negligence in failing to notify him of the dangerous conditions and for failing to handle the situation before it caused injury.
Willis is seeking more than $150,000 for compensation for all injuries received and all legal fees incurred. He is being represented by Jonathan S. Corchnoy of the Law Offices of Jonathan S. Corchnoy in Philadelphia.
