ORLANDO — An Orlando man is suing Dollar Tree, alleging negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.
John Santana filed a complaint Nov. 28 in Orange County Circuit Court against Dollar Tree Store Inc., doing business as Dollar Tree, alleging the retail store failed to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 11, 2017, Santana was a lawful business invitee at Dollar Tree's store at 4568 S. Semoran Blvd Orlando. The suit says Santana slipped and fell on a liquid substance on the floor.
As a result, Santana says, he sustained bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, loss of ability to earn money, plus medical and treatment expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Dollar Tree failed to inspect its floors to ascertain whether it is safe for customers and failed to warn customers of the danger of the liquid substance on the floor.
Santana seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, interest and court costs. He is represented by attorneys Jason P. Herman and Jason Grundorf of Dan Newlin & Partners in Orlando.
