Joe Gorga sued for failure to provide safe premises

The "Real Housewives" television franchise and its viewers enjoy a good drama, and those who participate in the show typically have plenty to provide. Recently, it was a husband who provided some real-life drama; he is known because of his wife and sister's participation on the popular show. Maryland residents may be interested to learn that Joe Gorga has had a lawsuit filed against him for failure to provide safe premises.

Reportedly, Joe Gorga and his wife, Melissa, are no strangers to civil lawsuits. Currently, Melissa has her own legal troubles with a former business partner who has sued her for $30 million. Joe has also been sued for the amount he owed for a window installment on a property he owned. Additionally, the couple opened and closed a pizza restaurant in 2017 due to unresolvable issues with their business partners.

Joe's current lawsuit has been filed by a former tenant. The tenant claims to have slipped on some ice on one of Joe's properties almost two years ago. The property is under a business name that Joe owns. According to the tenant, the fall resulted in a broken arm, and he is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.

Slip and fall hazards are very common this time of year in Maryland. Property owners are required to be diligent to provide a safe environment. Any negligence may result in similar lawsuits for failure to provide safe premises. Maryland personal injury attorneys can review a victim's case and can advise accordingly.
