MEDIA – Drexel Hill-based plaintiffs allege a high school parking lot fall which occurred last January is the result of the subject township and school district neglecting their responsibilities to maintain that area.
Robert Dowd and Anne Dowd of Drexel Hill filed suit in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas on July 13 versus The School District Of Haverford Township and the Township of Haverford.
On or about Jan. 18 this year, Robert Dowd was walking on the exterior of the defendants’ premises at Haverford High School, when he was suddenly and unexpectedly caused to trip and fall due to dangerous and defective conditions, such as a traffic cone and a darkened parking area.
According to the lawsuit, the defendants failed to inspect, discover and remedy the conditions, or warn members of the public about them. As a result, Robert suffered injuries to his shoulder, elbow and wrist.
For counts of negligence and loss of consortium (a charge by filed by Anne), the plaintiffs seek damages, jointly and severally, in an amount in excess of $50,000.
The plaintiffs are represented by Leonard K. Hill and David M. Maselli of Hill & Associates, in Philadelphia.
