Case #22-0048937

Fifty-year-old mother and her son seek representation in a slip-and-fall matter in Court of Common Pleas. Clients are being sued by a woman they are familiar with who used to live in the neighborhood and is claiming to have fallen on their property in June 2022. Mother advised that the woman informed her that she was dizzy, then stumbled from the neighbor’s sidewalk, over clients’ property, and fell in the lot in front of the other neighbor’s property. The affidavits of service for mother and son state that they were served on November 13, 2022. A volunteer is needed to respond to the complaint and represent clients throughout the case. Clients were granted a 90-days’ extension to file an Answer.
