ORLANDO — An Orange County woman is suing an Orlando property owner for allegedly keeping a dangerous condition on its premises.
Susan A. O'Brien filed a complaint Dec. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against Orion Investment and Management Ltd. Corp., doing business as Orion Real Estate Group, alleging the defendant violated relevant safety standards through its design and lack of marking or painting on its property.
According to the complaint, on March 1, 2016, while walking from the parking lot to the building entrance of Orion Real Estate at 7335 West Sand Lake Road, Orlando, O'Brien tripped, stumbled and fell violently due to an unmarked wheels stop directly in her path to the building's entrance. O'Brien says she fell violently on the concrete entrance and tore the rotator cuff of her right arm and suffered two seizures while being attended by a nurse who worked in the doctor's office in the building.
The plaintiff alleges Orion Real Estate Group failed to design, paint or otherwise mark a wheel stop at the building entrance and directly in the path of a foreseeable pedestrian path to the entrance.
O'Brien seeks trial by jury and damages in excess of $15,000. She is represented by attorney Robert C. Bissell of Maitland.
