SAN FRANCISCO – A woman is seeking damages from a homeowners association and others after a fall at a San Francisco property that allegedly caused the removal of an abdominal drainage tube.
Jacqueline Burks filed a complaint on Nov. 21 in the San Francisco Superior Court against 140 Divisadero Street HOA; San Francisco Renaissance Painting Inc. and Does 1 to 100 alleging negligence and premises liability.
According to the complaint, on July 17, 2017, Burks was descending defendants' stairway when contact paper placed on the steps slipped out from under her foot and she fell down the stairway.
As a result, plaintiff alleges she was injured and her abdominal drainage tube from her surgery was ripped out, and she later became septic due to the tube being exposed to the air.
The plaintiff holds 140 Divisadero Street HOA; San Francisco Renaissance Painting Inc. and Does 1 to 100 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide warning of the dangerous condition.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for compensatory damages according to proof. She is represented by Blake P. Bostwick of Bostwick & Peterson LLP in Mill Valley.
