PITTSBURGH — A business invitee is suing Roberts QSR Management Inc., which operates a McDonald's restaurant, David Shapira and Irwin Shapira, claiming that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
John Martinez filed a complaint June 19 in the Allegheny County Courts of Common Pleas, alleging that he was injured at the defendants' McDonald's on Jan. 20 when he slipped and fell on ice on the sidewalk outside the establishment.
Martinez said he suffered serious and permanent injuries to his neck and head that resulted in permanent scarring, disfigurement, loss of earnings and medical and rehabilitative expenses.
The plaintiff claims the defendants failed to properly test, inspect and clean the sidewalk and failed to provide sufficient warning of the foreseeable danger.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs and other proper and just relief. He is represented by Marc Simon of Simon & Simon PC in Pittsburgh.
