CLEARWATER — A Tampa woman is suing owners of a St. Petersburg restaurant, alleging premises liability and negligence.
Stephanie Brooke Mothershead filed a complaint Nov. 28 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Knight Global Entertainment LLC, doing business as MacDinton's St. Pete, alleging the restaurant owner failed to follow applicable safety guidelines and regulations.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 29, Mothershead was on the defendant's property at MacDinton St. Pete's Irish Pub and Restaurant in St. Petersburg. The suit says she slipped on an unknown substance while on her way to the restrooms and fell onto the floor.
The lawsuit states Mothershead struck her face, head, knees, forearms and elbows on the floor, causing a fracture to her face and teeth, plus bodily injuries.
The plaintif alleges MacDinton's St. Pete allowed an unknown substance to remain on the floor, creating a fall hazard, and failed to warn the plaintiff of the dangerous condition on the premises.
Mothershead seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus interest and court costs, and all further relief the court deems proper.. She is represented by attorneys Rolando J. Santiago and Gregory S. Grossman of RJS Law Group in Apollo Beach.
