PITTSBURGH — A business invitee is suing Giant Eagle Inc., t/d/b/a GetGo, a convenience store operator, citing alleged negligence.
Anna Stephens filed a complaint on Nov. 27 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against Giant Eagle Inc., alleging the convenience store operator failed to provide a reasonably safe premises for its invitees.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 4 she was injured when she tripped on a concrete stub at defendant's GetGo convenience store in Mt. Pleasant.
She allegedly suffered a severe hip fracture that required surgical repair with a rod and two bolts in her femur. She has not been able to work since then, the suit says.
The plaintiff says the defendant failed to upkeep its premises including the sidewalk, where the concrete slab was located, and failed to give adequate warning of the existing dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in the amount of more than $35,000, with interest, costs and all other relief deemed appropriate. She is represented by Matthew Marquette of Echard Marquette PC in Allison Park.
