PHILADELPHIA — An airline passenger is suing American Airlines Group Inc. and other airport operators, alleging that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries at the American Airlines terminal at Philadelphia International Airport.
Mary O'Grady filed a complaint May 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
According to the complaint, O'Grady was allegedly injured at an American Airlines terminal on June 1, 2016 when she was struck by a automatic door. She allegedly sustained injuries to her head, face, neck and lower spine.
O'Grady said she holds American Airlines and the other defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to properly inspect the automatic door and failed to provide adequate warning of the known hazard.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in her favor in excess of $75,000, with interest, costs and any delay damages she may be due. She is represented by Joseph Wusinich III and Edward Sweeney of Wusinich & Brogan PC in Downingtown.
