Sidewalk / Water Meter Fall Case
Owens v. Meterreaders LLc et al., Multnomah County Case No. 14CV06630
Plaintiff Owens was a pedestrian walking on a sidewalk that had an underground water meter box below it. The box was installed flush to the sidewalk with a removable cover to allow access to the meter. When Owens stepped onto the cover it moved due to structural defects and caused Owens to fall. She suffered injuries to her cervical spine and shoulder, including a fractured humerus. Her injuries required surgical repair. She brought this lawsuit against Metereaders LLC, the company responsible for reading and inspecting the meters . . .
