Rebecca and John Szczerbinski filed a complaint in Hancock Circuit Court against DRG Inc. alleging that the defendant breached its duty to an remove unsafe and hazardous condition in the parking lot of its business premises. DRG does business as Granato's Imported Foods & Deli.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 22, 2016, Rebecca Szczerbinski visited defendant's place of business and fell to the ground as she attempted to enter the parking area, which the complaint alleges had an unsafe design and construction.
