PHILADELPHIA — Darlene Horn filed a complaint on July 26, in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, against A & E Realty Group, alleging that the premises controller failed to ensure that its premises did not present any danger to the public.
The plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 29, 2017, she was at the defendant's premises, at or near 4415 Decatur St., when she claims she suffered an electric shock while using an appliance due to faulty wiring in an electric outlet.
The case was removed to federal court by the defendant a month later.
She suffered serious and permanent injuries resulting in disfigurement, post-traumatic headaches, great pain and emotional distress, according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiff holds A & E Realty Group LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly design and construct its electrical system and failed to give any warning of the existing danger.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs and such other necessary relief. She is represented by Marc F. Greenfield of Spear, Greenfield, Richman, Weitz & Taggart PC in Philadelphia.
