A business invitee is suing an Orlando business for alleged negligence.
The woman filed a complaint on June 21 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the business failed to provide a safe environment for its business invitees.
According to the complaint, the woman alleges that she was returning to her car on March 11, 2015 when she tripped and/or slipped on an uneven sidewalk on the business’ parking lot. As a result, she suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish, an aggravation of a pre-existing condition, medical expenses and loss of earnings.
She holds the business responsible for allegedly failing to correct a dangerous condition and provide adequate signs that warned of the dangerous condition.
She is seeking more than $15,000 in damages.
If you slipped in a parking lot, there are a number of questions our Florida Slip and Fall Accident Injury Lawyers will ask you to determine who is at-fault and whether you can be compensated, including the events leading up to your accident.
After a slip and fall, the first we want to find out about is who is responsible for the condition of the parking lot. Was the parking lot public property or was the lot owned, managed, and maintained by a private individual or business? In most cases, the person responsible for your injuries from a slip and fall is the person responsible for maintaining the parking lot. For this specific case, it would appear that the parking lot is privately owned, which most likely means the case will deal with the business and that business’s liability insurance provider.
