CLEARWATER — A Tallahassee man is suing a Clearwater miniature golf facility, alleging negligence.
Kenneth A. Hoffman filed a complaint Nov. 7 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Elias Anastasopoulos and Helen Anastasopoulos, doing business as Captain Bligh's Landing Inc., alleging they failed to provide a safe environment for its business invitees.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 2, Hoffman was at the defendants’ miniature golf course at 630 S. Gulfview Blvd., Clearwater. The suit says Hoffman was traversing the course when he unknowingly stepped down a steep angle on the floor, causing him to fall.
The lawsuit states Allen suffered serious injuries to his right leg and back, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previous existing condition.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide a side walkway, lighting, and warning of a steep drop-off, failed to inspect the hidden dangers on the property, and failed to warn Hoffman of the dangerous drop-off.
Hoffman seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest and costs of action. He is represented by attorney Henry J. Graham of Fasig Brooks PLLC in Tallahassee.
