City sued over trip and fall

A Penticton retiree is suing the city for a fall she took at the downtown market in June.

In a civil claim filed in Penticton Supreme Court last week, Elaine Allison alleges she was walking in the 300 block of Main Street on June 3 when she fell over a ridge of asphalt “protruding from the roadway,” hurting her right knee and arm.

The lawsuit claims the city was negligent in allowing the roadway to deteriorate in condition to the point that it was dangerous.

Allison is seeking general damages for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, loss of income and earning capacity, special damages and costs.

The City of Penticton has yet to file a response in court.

Somewhat related; the city is proceeding with revitalization work this year on the 300 block on Main St. that will include pedestrian safety improvements.
