PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia woman alleges she was injured because of a sidewalk's icy conditions at a post office.
Sonia Rivera-Gonzalez filed a complaint on Nov. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the United States of America alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 4, 2014, she sustained physical injuries when she slipped and fell on ice on the sidewalk at the post office on Castor Avenue. The plaintiff holds the United States of America responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to remove the ice that accumulated on the sidewalk of the post office.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant for damages in an amount of more than $150,000 plus interest and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Jeffrey F. Parker of Goldberg & Weinstein LLC in Philadelphia.
