By Philip Gonzales | Nov 12, 2018

PITTSBURGH — An insurance company is suing Nicholas Coffee & Tea Co., a restaurant operator, citing alleged negligence.

Penn National Security Insurance Co., et al, filed a complaint on Oct. 31 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against Nicholas Coffee & Tea Co., alleging the restaurant operator failed to properly and safely operate a coffee roaster.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 30, 2017, a fire originated from defendant's use of the coffee roaster that resulted to severe and extensive damage and loss of income to plaintiff's insured property.

Plaintiffs say they were obligated to pay their insured in an amount exceeding $100,000. The plaintiff holds Nicholas Coffee & Tea Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to take proper and necessary precautions and failed to use proper equipment and materials to prevent the fire.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment be entered in its favor, together with interest, costs and such other and further relief as this court deems appropriate. They are represented by Michael O'Donnell of Cozen O'Connor in Philadelphia and Maura Winters of Pittsburgh.
