PHILADELPHIA – A Merion Station property owner has accused Comcast of improperly installing the security system on that same property, leading it to later be the setting of a robbery.
Matthew Levitsky of Merion Station filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 24 versus Comcast Corporation, of Philadelphia.
“On or about April 17, 2016, plaintiff was legally the owner of the premises [on the 100 block of Merion Road, in Merion Station], when, as a result of the negligence, recklessness and/or carelessness of the defendants, the premises was robbed and the aforementioned security system failed to properly function. As a result of this incident, the plaintiff suffered property loss. If an arbitration hearing is appealed, plaintiff demands a jury trial in an amount in excess of $50,000.00,” the suit states.
The plaintiff believes Comcast exhibited negligence, recklessness and/or carelessness by failing to properly design, construct, maintain, and/or repair the security system; installing the security sensors upside down; installing the security sensors incorrectly and failing to check the installation of the security sensors to ensure that they were correctly installed, among numerous other examples of alleged negligence.
“As a direct result of the negligent, careless and/or reckless conduct of defendant, the plaintiff suffered various property losses,” the complaint reads
For a lone count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus attorney’s fees, costs and any other relief the Court deems necessary.
The plaintiff is represented by David E. Kwartler of Kwartler Manus, in Philadelphia.
