PHILADELPHIA – An uneven curb outside a McDonald’s restaurant on South Broad Street in Philadelphia allegedly led to a personal injury-related accident and for the plaintiff to file legal action against the entities allegedly responsible.

Brenda Cleveland of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on April 26 against McDonald’s Corporation (c/o The Prentice Hall Corp. Systems) of Harrisburg, Jo-Dan/Madalisse Ltd., LLC of Bala Cynwyd, Mahavir and Muni Incorporated of Pittsburgh and R&H Herskowitz Properties, LLC of Deptford, N.J.

“On Sept. 24, 2016, plaintiff was an invitee, licensee and/or otherwise legally on defendant’s premises, when, as a result of the negligence and/or carelessness of the defendants, the plaintiff tripped and fell due to uneven curb on the premises. As a result of this accident, the plaintiff suffered severe and permanent bodily injury,” the suit says.

Cleveland alleges the defendants failed to inspect, maintain or repair the curb in question, failed to barricade and block off the affected area and failed to prevent or remove a dangerous condition, which led her to suffer a broken right wrist and other injuries.

For four individual counts of personal injury against each defendant, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus all reasonable costs, any other relief the Court deems necessary and a trial by jury.

The plaintiff is represented by Marc F. Greenfield of Spear Greenfield Richman Weitz & Taggart, in Philadelphia.

The defendants are represented by Timothy J. Kepner of William J. Ferren & Associates and Gerard F. Lipski of Campbell Lipski & Dochney, all in Philadelphia.
