PITTSBURGH — A couple are suing Disney after the husband allegedly was exposed to toxic fumes.

Gregory A. and Mary Ann S. Mihalko filed a complaint in Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against The Walt Disney Co. and Disney Vacation Development Inc.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff is seeking damages for an incident that took place while the plaintiff was a guest at the Vero Beach Resort at 9520 Island Grover Terrace in Vero Beach, Fla., on Aug. 5, 2015. 

The sink became clogged and the plaintiff reported the issue to the facility, the suit says. The defendant's employee used Arrow Adhesives PVC solvent cement to repair the pipes, and the plaintiff allegedly was caused to suffer an allergic reaction from the toxic fumes, the suit says.

The plaintiff's HVAC system stopped working and when the plaintiff returned to his room, he discovered that the fumes had gotten worse, the suit says. The plaintiff was caused to suffer severe and debilitating injuries from the exposure, the suit says.

The defendant is accused of negligence.

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by John Quinn of Quinn Logue LLC.

Allegheny County Court case number GD-17-010846
