SAN FRANCISCO – A man alleges he was injured at a Burlingame construction site when a golf court he was riding in fell into an improperly marked trench.
Gary Stapleton filed a complaint on Feb. 5 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Burlingame Point LLC, Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Co., Kylli Inc. and Does 1 through 20 alleging premises liability and general negligence.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 20, 2018, Stapleton was inspecting the work in progress at the Burlingame Point construction site in Burlingame and was injured after falling into an improperly marked trench while riding a golf cart. The suit states the remaining defendants either managed or were general contractors at the site.
As a result, the plaintiff alleges he sustained fractured left ankle and other injuries, causing him to incur medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Burlingame Point LLC, Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Co., Kylli Inc. and Does 1 through 20 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to mark the trench as a hazard.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for compensatory damages, costs of suit, and for such relief as is fair, just and equitable. He is represented by Edward M. Mastrangelo of Mastrangelo Law Offices in Orinda.
