PITTSBURGH — A woman is suing the City of Pittsburgh, citing alleged negligence.
Hailee McCullough filed a complaint in the Allegheny County Courts of Common Pleas against the City of Pittsburgh, alleging the entity breached its duty to maintain its premises in a reasonable, safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 5, 2018, she was caused to trip and fall on defective asphalt at or near the intersection of Jasper Street and Boggs Avenue. She suffered serious personal injuries including but not limited to lacerations, contusions and bruising, the suit says.
The plaintiff holds the City of Pittsburgh responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly design, construct and maintain the street pavements and failed to provide adequate warning and/or block-off the defective area.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor for a sum exceeding $35,000, plus costs and such other just and proper relief. She is represented by Marc Simon of Simon & Simon PC in Pittsburgh.
