MEDIA (Legal Newsline) - An elderly woman is suing a Newtown Square restaurant, alleging she was knocked down by a revolving door with tinted glass.
Anahid Megerian, 77, who resides in Newtown Square, filed the suit against Bonefish Grill LLC in Delware County. Also named as defendants are Bloomin' Brands Inc. and National Realty Corp.
The suit alleges that all three entities were "in the business of owning, operating, maintaining, managing and controlling a restaurant premises known as Bonefish Grill." Megerian alleges that on Jan. 6, 2018, she went to the restaurant and was directed by staff to enter through a revolving door. She entered the revolving door but was unable to get out of it because there were people standing in the way, the suit alleges.
Megerian alleges that "other patrons attempted to enter the door before plaintiff was clear of the swinging door, causing the door to strick plaintiff in the back and causing her to fall and impact the floor, resulting in serious and permanent injuries."
The door was "heavily tinted" and the tinting prevented patrons from being able to see if someone was still inside the door, the suit alleges.
The suit is filed in Delaware County Court of Common Pleas. Megerian is represented by Justin M. Bernstein of Kenneth R. Schuster & Associates.
