PHILADELPHIA — A woman is suing the United States of America, the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Attorney General, citing alleged negligence.
Teresa Rosati filed a complaint Aug. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, claiming the defendants failed to inspect their premises.
According to the complaint, Rosati presented a claim on Jan. 15 for bodily injuries that allegedly arose from an accident that happened on the Social Security Administration's property on Dec. 21. Rosati alleges that she suffered injuries to her ankle, left leg, left knee, left wrist and left elbow.
Rosati said the defendants should be held responsible because they allegedly failed to make necessary repairs and failed to provide warning of a dangerous condition and because they refused to pay her claim for damages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment against the defendants, plus all other available relief. She is represented by Thomas Sacchetta of Sacchetta & Baldino in Media.
