Maryland Woman Sues after Tripping over Flower Pot

September 15, 2009

A Maryland woman is seeking $150,000 for injuries she says she sustained when she tripped over a flower pot at a fire hall in 2006.

According to court documents, Shirley Hiser filed suit Tuesday against the Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Co. The suit says she tripped over a concrete flower pot near the fire hall’s entrance, fell and was hurt.

The suit contends that Hiser sustained “severe and permanent injuries,” including a broken left wrist, which were caused by the negligence of the fire company.

Chief William Garrett referred questions to the fire company’s president, Leonard Horst. Horst said he didn’t know anything about the suit.
