The plaintiff alleges Cricket Club Apartments failed to exclude dangerous individuals/patrons by allowing them on the property, failed to adequately warn guests of the dangers in the area and failed to provide security guards to prevent an unreasonable risk of harm.

Flores seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, plus court costs, interest and all other just and proper relief. He is represented by attorneys Craig R. Lynd, Jeffrey S. Kaufman and Ashley Lefevre of Kaufman & Lynd, PLLC in Orlando.
