CLEARWATER — A New Hampshire woman is suing the owners of a Treasure Island, Florida, condominium, alleging negligence led to flooding and injuries.
Deborah Rowles filed a complaint Nov. 8 in the Pinellas Circuit Court against Sunsational Beach Rentals LLC, Surf Beach Resort Condominium Association Inc. et al.,, alleging they failed to use due care to maintain their premises in a safe condition.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 14, 2013, Rowles was in her rented condominium unit at Surf Beach Resort, when water began coming out of the ceiling and the walls and flooded the unit. The suit says Rowles walked to the kitchen to use the telephone and slipped and fell.
Rowles says she suffered serious and permanent injuries, physical pain and suffering, inconvenience, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previous existing disease.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to properly maintain the property and their common structural elements, failed to warn guests of the dangerous condition, and failed to conduct an adequate inspection that would have revealed the danger to guests.
Rowles seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus court costs and all other just relief. She is represented by attorneys Frank D. Butler and James S. Curtis of Pinellas Park.
