ORLANDO — A handicapped woman is suing an Orlando shopping center property owner, alleging negligence caused her wheelchair to tip over.
Deborah Chambers filed a complaint Nov. 6 in Orange County Circuit Court against DDRM Conway Plaza LLC, alleging failure to use due care to maintain its shopping center in a safe condition.
According to the complaint, on May 3, 2014, Chambers was legally on the Conway Plaza property in Orlando as a customer and as a member of the general public. The suit says Chambers' motor wheelchair hit a crack on the sidewalk and tipped over.
As a result of the defendant's negligence in allowing an unreasonable risk of harm, the lawsuit states, Chambers suffered bodily injury, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges DDRM Conway Plaza failed to warn her of the dangerous condition, failed to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition, and failed to properly provide training to their employees regarding the proper maintenance and inspection of the shopping center property.
Chambers seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, exclusive of costs, attorney fees and all further relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Trenton M. Swan of The Pendas Law Firm in Orlando.
