Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims of trip and fall accidents, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a man who was injured, allegedly due to negligent conditions at the parking garage on the premises of Georgetown Square Condominiums in Poughkeepsie, New York.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was a tenant of the building, leasing an apartment from one of the Defendants, when on Feb. 29, 2012, he tripped and fell.

The Plaintiff suffered from pain, shock and mental anguish as a result of his injury, the suit alleges. The lawsuit also alleges that these damages will lead to ongoing expenses for medical care and attention. Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges that the Plaintiff was and will continue to be unable to perform normal activities and that there was no negligence on his part in any way.
