PITTSBURGH – A plaintiff who allegedly suffered bodily injury just after leaving a hair salon in Sewickley is suing the owner of the premises for damages in state court.
Linda Kolich and Paul Kolich of Sewickley filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 16 versus Kristi C. Pyle, also of Sewickley.
On July 25, Linda claims she was leaving the hair salon located on the defendant’s premises, when the suit states she was caused to fall due to a raised and uneven sidewalk, causing serious and permanent injuries.
Linda claims to have sustained bilateral patella fractures, which require surgery on the right patella; right distal radius fracture, which required surgery and will require another surgery; loss of range in motion to her right wrist; jaw contusion and bruising; bilateral wrist pain, with swelling and some deformity to her right wrist; bilateral knee pain, with swelling, scrapes and deformity to her right knee and permanent scarring.
The plaintiffs claim the defendant failed to properly and timely repair the uneven, raised sidewalk, failed to ensure its premises were free of any dangerous conditions, and exposed the injured plaintiff to unreasonable risk of bodily injury, in addition to other charges.
For counts of negligence and loss of consortium, the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of the applicable arbitration limits, exclusive of interest and costs.
The plaintiffs are represented by George M. Kontos and Claire McGee of Kontos & Mengine, in Pittsburgh.
