PHILADELPHIA — An individual is suing Lowe's Companies Inc. for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.
Quincy King filed a complaint on April 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant failed to properly secure a fire extinguisher.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that a fire extinguisher fell on his right foot while he allegedly was on the defendant's property. As a result, he claims that he has suffered severe injuries. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing adequately inspect the area, which the plaintiff claims would have allowed the defendant to discover that the fire extinguisher was in a dangerous position.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $75,000, plus interest and costs. He is represented by Agostino Cammisa of Trichon, Cammisa & Axelrod PC in Philadelphia.
