ORLANDO – A Brevard County woman alleges that she was injured in an Orange County parking lot because of a crack in the pavement.
Margaret McNeely filed a complaint on June 8 in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Orange County against Hogan Properties LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 19, 2016, she visited defendant's premises as a customer of one of its retail tenants when she tripped and fell to the ground from the large crack and uneven pavement of the parking lot. As a result, plaintiff alleges she sustained injuries in and about her body and extremities, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, scarring, mental anguish, medical expenses and aggravation of a previously existing condition.
