The fire chief of Patterson, New Jersey has filed suit against Passaic County claiming the county is responsible for the injuries he sustained at a fire in 2011.
Fire Chief Michael Postorino was injured on February 18, 2011, while battling a major fire that damaged four buildings. He reportedly stepped into a hole in a county owned road and was seriously injured. He claims that the fall caused permanent injuries resulting in him having to expend “large sums of money for medical care and attention”.
The suit was filed on Monday in Superior Court for Passaic County. It alleges that the county was on notice of the hole in the road, and negligently failed to address the risk.
Still working on getting a copy of the complaint.
