ORLANDO — A customer is suing Hobby Lobby, alleging negligence caused her to fall and suffer injuries.
Myriam Quintero filed a complaint Sept. 28 in Orange County Circuit Court against Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. and Weingarten Nostat Inc., doing busienss as Colonial Plaza Market Center, alleging failure to follow applicable safety guidelines and regulations.
According to the complaint, on June 18, 2015, Quintero was a business invitee at a Hobby Lobby 2728 E. Colonial Drive, Orlando. The suit says Quintero was injured as she slipped and fell due to water leaking from the roof near the entrance area.
As a result of the incident, Quintero alleges she suffered bodily injury, mental and/or psychological disorders, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, and expense of hospitalization.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide warnings of unsafe conditions to its invitees, failed to have a proper maintenance/clean-up plan in place, and failed to properly supervise maintenance personnel.
Quintero seeks trial by jury, damages that exceed $15,000, exclusive of costs, attorney fees and all further relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Michael B. Sanchez of The Pendas Law Firm in Orlando.
