PHILADELPHIA – A man who suffered permanent personal injuries after an allegedly injurious fall at a Philadelphia U-Haul store has launched legal action, claiming the store’s inherently dangerous condition led to that accident.
Thomas Keghler of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on March 14 versus U-Haul of Pennsylvania, also of Philadelphia.
On March 5, 2017, the plaintiff was a business invitee on U-Haul’s premises in Philadelphia, when the suit says he was caused to fall due to a raised section of carpet on the floor, which created a dangerous condition on the premises and caused his serious and permanent personal injuries.
As a result of the fall, Keghler suffered “various serious and permanent personal injuries, serious impairment of bodily function and/or permanent serious disfigurement and/or aggravation of pre-existing conditions, and other ills and injuries, all to plaintiff’s great loss and detriment.”
For a lone count of 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 Philadelphia.
