PHILADELPHIA — A man is suing the owners of a Philadelphia business after he allegedly slipped and fell when coming out of an elevator.

Richard Kisielewski filed a complaint June 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against PA-1601 Market Street LP, Transwestern 1601 Market Street GP LLC, APF 1601 Market Street GP LLC, Cushman & Wakefield Inc. and PBM LLC, alleging that the defendants breached their duty as business owners and operators to maintain the property in a safe manner.

According to the complaint, Kisielewski was exiting the elevator in the lobby of the defendants' building on Oct. 4, 2016 when he lost his balance, slipped, stumbled and fell, resulting in serious and permanent injuries. 

The plaintiff said the alleged accident was caused by liquid on the elevator carpet and floor that posed a serious risk of injury. 

The plaintiff said the defendants allegedly failed to correct the dangerous condition, failed to properly, completely and thoroughly inspect the property and failed to promptly and carefully post warning signs about the dangerous conditions.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment for compensatory damages in excess of $50,000, together with the costs of the lawsuit. He is represented by Dana Klayman Weitz of Schatz & Steinberg PC in Philadelphia.
