PHILADELPHIA — An individual is suing 7-Eleven Inc., a convenience store, citing alleged negligence, liability and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
Anthony Reed filed a complaint on Oct. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against 7-Eleven Inc. alleging that the convenience store failed to clean or remove ice that was on its property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 21, 2015, he sustained serious physical injuries from slipping on ice on the sidewalk. The plaintiff holds 7-Eleven Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly allowed ice without providing adequate warning regarding the hazardous condition of the sidewalk.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $75,000 plus court costs, interest, compensatory damages, and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Brad S. Tabakin and Richard A. Wolfe of Tabakinwolfe LLP in Plymouth Meeting.
