Sabrina Harris filed a complaint June 29 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, alleging the defendants failed to maintain the roadway their property in a safe condition.

According to the complaint, Harris was on a roadway maintained by the defendants on July 15, 2016 when she allegedly fell to the ground because the defendants failed to address an improperly constructed street and/or a pothole. As a result of the defendants' alleged negligence, the plaintiff said she suffered serious injuries, mental anguish and humiliation, lost earnings and required medical attention.

Harris said the defendants allegedly failed to properly inspect, repair and maintain the roadway, failed to warn pedestrians of the existence of a highly dangerous condition and failed to take into her rights and safety into account.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment against defendants in an amount not in excess of arbitration limits, plus interest and costs. She is represented by Adam Grutzmacher of Clearfield & Kofsky in Philadelphia.
