PITTSBURGH – A recently filed lawsuit alleges that a plaintiff’s severe knee injuries suffered at a Pittsburgh Macy’s department store were the result of that store’s defective entranceway condition.

Ruth Snodgrass of Dravosburg filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 16 versus Macy’s and Macy’s HQ, both of Pittsburgh.


On Sept. 9, 2017, Snodgrass claimed she was on the premises at Macy’s, located in Pittsburgh’s South Hills Village, when the lawsuit states she was caused to fall on defective, uneven pavement and/or concrete which was located at or near the entrance, causing serious and permanent personal injuries.

Snodgrass supposedly sustained right knee injuries, including a fracture and a tear, plus scrapes, lacerations, contusions and bruising.

The plaintiff claims the defendants failed to exercise proper care over the premises, failed to inspect, monitor, repair or warn of the defective and dangerous entranceway condition in question, in addition to other charges.

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

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