PITTSBURGH – A plaintiff who is said to have sustained a torn rotator cuff and concussion after an alleged injurious fall in a J.C. Penney’s department store hair salon, has initiated legal action against the retailer.
Marianne Palombi and Frank Palombi of Carnegie filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 5 versus J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc., of Wilmington, Del.
On Aug. 4, 2016, Marianne alleges she was caused to fall to the ground inside the J.C. Penney’s store hair salon located in Pittsburgh’s Robinson Town Centre, causing her a number of serious injuries. Per the instant litigation, Marianne suffered a torn left rotator cuff resulting in corrective surgery, left shoulder pain, loss of range of the motion of her left shoulder, a concussion and scarring.
The plaintiffs allege that the defendant failed to inspect, maintain, repair or warn of the dangerous condition located in the hair salon and failed to exercise ordinary care, among other charges.
For counts of negligence and loss of consortium, the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of the arbitration limits of Allegheny County, plus costs, interest and a trial by jury.
The plaintiffs are represented by Jephthah M. Orstein of Ainsman Levine, in Pittsburgh.
