By Lhalie Castillo | Feb 1, 2018


WHEELING – A patron of a Wheeling fast food restaurant alleges he was injured because of a hazardous condition.

George Petz filed a complaint in Ohio Circuit Court against Mac-Sto Restaurants LLC, doing business as McDonald's, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 23, 2017, he was a guest at defendant's McDonald's restaurant at 211 Warwood Ave., Wheeling when he was caused to fall due to a hazardous condition of the premises. He alleges he sustained severe and disabling injuries that resulted in medical expenses, mental anguish, pain and suffering and inconvenience. 

The plaintiff holds Mac-Sto Restaurants LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to conduct a reasonable inspection of the premises and failed to correct the condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court, plus interest, costs and any further relief as the court deems proper and just. He is represented by Kevin M. Pearl of Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, DeCapio & Pearl LLP in Weirton. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James P. Mazzone.
