PHILADELPHIA — A business invitee is suing National Railroad Passenger Corp., d/b/a Amtrak, citing alleged negligence.

Phyllis Kleckley filed a complaint on Oct. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against National Railroad Passenger Corp., d/b/a Amtrak, alleging the common carrier failed to inspect the premises and failed to properly repair a hazard.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 4, 2016, she was injured at defendant's premises when she slipped and fell on a wet step on an escalator on 30th Street Station. She suffered serious personal injuries, including but not limited to anterior talofibular ligament sprain, swelling around her ankle, and muscle spasms, and incurred expenses totaling $28,874.73, the suit says. 

The plaintiff holds Amtrak, responsible because the defendant failed to correct the dangerous condition and failed to give adequate warning of the wet floor.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in an amount sufficient to compensate her for her damages, attorney's fees, costs and all other appropriate relief. She is represented by Alan Denenberg of Abramson & Denenberg PC in Philadelphia.

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-04298-MMB.
