MEDIA — An invitee is suing Heritage Ballrooms, a venue controller, citing alleged negligence.
Jennifer Gibbs-Miller filed a complaint on Nov. 26 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against Heritage Ballrooms, alleging the venue controller failed to maintain its premises reasonably safe for its invitees.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 30, 2017, she was an invitee at defendant's premises in Holmes when she tripped and fell on a defective manhole cover while going to the parking lot.
She says she suffered severe and permanent injuries including but not limited to a fractured right ankle. The plaintiff holds Heritage Ballrooms responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate lighting in the area where plaintiff tripped and failed to barricade of block-off the defective area on its premises.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $50,000, attorney's fees, costs and such other necessary relief. She is represented by David Kwartler of Kwartler Manus LLC in Philadelphia.
