SAN FRANCISCO — A man is suing the U.S. Postal Service, citing alleged premises liability and negligence for a fall.
Chester Digirolamo filed a complaint on Dec. 2, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the defendants alleging that they failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the safety of its patrons.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on June 11, 2014, he tripped and fell on a curb in the parking lot of the premises that was owned by the defendant, and was being used by one of its agencies, the United States Postal Service in Alameda. As a result of the incident, plaintiff fractured his neck which required surgery, and caused him to suffer from shock, anxiety, emotional distress, and incurred medical expenses and loss of income. The plaintiff holds United States of America and Does 1-25 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to warn plaintiff about the existing dangers of the premises, failed its duty to maintain and supervise the premises where the accident occurred, and allowed a dangerous condition to exist.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant, general damages, special damages, costs of suit and further relief as the court deem proper. He is represented by Brian L. Larsen of Law Offices of Brian L. Larsen in San Francisco.
