By Nicholas Malfitano | Dec 14, 2017

PITTSBURGH – A local food establishment is the subject of legal action from a plaintiff who suffered cervical neck injuries and scarring, as a result of an accident on their premises.

Marlene Lichtenfelts of Verona filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Dec. 12 versus A.W. Food Express, Inc., Abdul Waheed and Surriya Waheed, all of Cheswick.

On Sept. 6, Lichtenfelts says she was caused a number of injuries by an improperly-placed mat near the entrance doorway of A.W. Food Express, which allegedly created a dangerous condition and caused serious and permanent personal injuries.

The plaintiff alleges she suffered neck injuries, including disc protrusion and bulges; scrapes, lacerations, contusions and bruising, all of which caused permanent scarring and disfigurement.

According to the plaintiff, the defendants failed to design, construct, maintain and/or repair the mentioned areas on the premises, or warn of the aforementioned dangerous condition.  

For negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $35,000, plus all costs and other relief the Court deems just.

The plaintiff is represented by Marc I. Simon of Simon & Simon, in Pittsburgh.
