PITTSBURGH — An employee is suing Home Depot Inc. and her supervisors, Philip Rogers and Thomas Mason, citing negligence involving an alleged dog bite.
Lindsay Franczyk filed a complaint on Aug. 8, in the Allegheny County Courts of Common Pleas, alleging the defendants failed to maintain a safe work environment.
The plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 9, 2016, she was working at Home Depot Ohio Township Store when she was bitten by a dog brought in by a customer. She allegedly suffered severe and extreme pain to her right elbow, forearm, and hand and was diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome.
The plaintiff holds Home Depot, Philip Rogers and Thomas Mason responsible, because despite posting a store policy prohibiting customers from bringing pets inside the store, the defendants allowed them to do so and permitted the dog owner to leave without obtaining any identifying information.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, costs, interest, attorney's fees and such other lawful and equitable relief.
She is represented by Jason M. Plakosh of Law Office of Jason M. Plakosh in Swickleł.
