FORT LAUDERDALE – A New Jersey resident claims she was injured at a Fort Lauderdale restaurant because of a slippery dance floor.
Skyler Hill filed a complaint on May 12 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court of Flordia - Broward County against Tarpon Bend Food & Tackle - Riverwalk LTD and Restaurant People Management Co. LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 3, 2016, she was standing on the dance floor with friends inside the restaurant owned by the defendant when she slipped and fell because of the slippery condition of the floor. As a result, the plaintiff alleges she sustained damages, injury of the wrist, hip and leg, medical expenses and mental anguish.
The plaintiff holds Tarpon Bend Food & Tackle - Riverwalk LTD and Restaurant People Management Co. LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to warn plaintiff of the dangerous condition and failed to inspect the floors.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for damages, interest, costs and further relief as the court may deem proper. She is represented by Jason B. Blank of Haber Blank LLP in Fort Lauderdale.
