CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County woman is suing St. Petersburg Sam's Club property owners, alleging negligence caused injuries to the plaintiff.
Adriana Castaneda filed a complaint Sept. 27 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Sam's East Inc., doing business as Sam's Club No. 4861, and St. Petersburg Plaza Limited Partnership, alleging they failed to follow applicable safety guidelines and regulations.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 15, 2016, Castaneda she was injured due to a dangerous condition that existed at the Sam's Club premises at 1725 34th St. N., St. Petersburg. As a result of defendant's negligence, the suit says, Castaneda sustained bodily injuries and damages, including disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, costs of medical and nursing care and treatment, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previously existing condition.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to inspect the premises to ascertain whether hazardous conditions existed, failed to place or store boxed products in a safe and secure manner, and failed to warn Castaneda of the unreasonably dangerous conditions.
Castaneda seeks trial by jury, damages against the defendants of at least $15,000 and all further relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Andres N. Oliveros of Tampa and Dereck G. Capaz of Capaz Law Firm PA in Tampa.
