PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia man claims he suffered several bodily injuries when the medical stretcher he was being carried on was carelessly dropped by the defendant’s employees.
On April 9, Arnold Greene of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas versus Keystone Quality Transport Company, Inc., also of Philadelphia.
On June 23, 2017, Greene says he was being transported by stretcher outside of Presbyterian Hospital by employees of Keystone Quality Transport Company, when the stretcher he was being carried on was allegedly dropped in a negligent fashion by those same employees. Greene added this resulted in the stretcher flipping over on top of him, causing him personal injuries.
Greene stated the employees failed to properly secure the stretcher, failed to inspect the stretcher for safety purposes and failing to properly train its employees to safely transport patients by stretcher, among other charges, leading him to suffer injuries to his right elbow, left leg and left knee.
For a lone count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000.
The plaintiff is represented by Todd B. Jacobs of the Law Offices of Todd B. Jacobs, in Philadelphia.
