ORLANDO – A patron of an Orlando lounge, pool and billiard hall alleges she was injured after slipping on liquid on a dance floor.
Sumintra Sugrim filed a complaint on March 24 in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Orange County against Sip N Chat Restaurant & Lounge Inc. and R&A Investment of Orlando Inc. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 2, 2016, she fractured her left arm in multiple places, which required reconstructive surgical intervention, as a result of slipping and falling on a liquid substance that remained on the dance floor of defendants' property. The plaintiff holds Sip N Chat Restaurant & Lounge Inc. and R&A Investment of Orlando Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly ignored plaintiff's request for medical assistance at the time of the incident, failed to adequately warn plaintiff of the dangerous condition of the area, and failed to inspect, correct and maintain the dance floor free from all defects and hazardous conditions.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages of more than $15,000 against the defendants, exclusive of attorneys’ fees and costs. She is represented by Mark P. Cressman of Cressman Law Firm PA in Winter Garden.
