PHILADELPHIA – A Levittown plaintiff says a Home Goods store’s transparent floor easel created a dangerous condition which injured him, according to a new state court lawsuit.
On April 10, Eugene Figueroa of Levittown filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas versus Home Goods, TJ Maxx and McStome, all of Philadelphia, plus Lincoln Plaza Center, L.P., Simon Property Group, Inc. and Kravco Property Management, all of Wilmington, Del.
The lawsuit states nearly one year ago, on March 20, 2017, Figueroa was a customer at the Home Goods store in Langhorne. At that same date and time, the store floor allegedly contained a transparent easel on the floor walking area, and as a result, Figueroa was caused to fall due to the defective condition and suffer both back and spinal injuries.
Additionally, Figueroa says he incurred large past and future medical expenses for the diagnosis, treatment and care of his injuries, lost earnings, pain, suffering, embarrassment, humiliation, disfigurement and scarring.
For a count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus interest and costs.
The plaintiff is represented by John A. Manes Jr. of John A. Manes Jr. & Associates, in Trevose.
