Premises Liability Suit Filed Against School District

March 11, 2016

If a business owner in Pennsylvania fails to make his or her property safe for visitors and a visitor ends up being injured on the property, the business owner may be held financially responsible for the injuries. In one out-of-state case, a man claims that he fell and hurt himself at a school district’s property. He has filed a premises liability suit against the district.

According to his complaint, the man went to a middle school in the school district as a business invitee. While on a loading dock at the school, he claims to have slipped. He asserts that he fell due to allegedly hazardous conditions.

The man alleges that his fall caused him to suffer serious bodily injuries as well as injuries to the extremities. Moreover, these injuries may be permanent. He claims that a hazardous accumulation of ice and snow in elevations and ridges on the loading dock was responsible for the accident. The plaintiff alleges that it was the school district’s obligation to keep the premises safe and that failing to do so constituted willful negligence.

As part of the premises liability lawsuit, the plaintiff seeks over $150,000 in damages. He has requested a jury trial. When invitees suffer injuries on business properties due to the negligence of the Pennsylvania property owners, they have the right to pursue claims for damages, which — if achieved — may help them to cover their hospital bills, the loss of wages due to missed time from work and other damages recognized by applicable laws.
