Dettlaff v. Kirkwood Commons, LLC

Plaintiff's Petition


Petition in slip and fall case. Building owner allowed construction ramp to be left outside front door after construction had ceased for the day. Ramp stood only a few inches tall and was covered with a doormat, and therefore was barely visible to individuals walking on sidewalk. Petition also alleges violation of Des Moines Municipal Code section 102-42(a), which requires landowners to maintain the public sidewalk next to their property.
