MIAMI – A Miami man claims that a Pompano property is not in compliance with regulations regarding access to those with disabilities.

Christopher Hansen filed a complaint on April 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Pompano Service Station LLC and Cypress Petroleum Enterprises alleging that they failed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered and will continue to suffer legal harm, direct and indirect injury as a result of the illegal barriers to access the defendants' facility. The defendants allegedly have discriminated against him by denying access to the goods, services, facilities and accommodations being offered at their property. The plaintiff holds Pompano Service Station LLC and Cypress Petroleum Enterprises responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to adhere to a policy to ensure that all goods, services and facilities are readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order for defendants to remove the physical barriers to access and alter the subject facility to make it readily accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities, reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and litigation expenses. He is represented by Lauren N. Wassenberg of Law Offices of Lauren N. Wassenberg in Boca Raton.
