ORLANDO — An invitee is suing a self-storage company citing alleged negligence.
Iris M. Lopez-Ramos filed a complaint on Jan. 22 in the Pinellas Circuit Court against Amsdell Storage Ventures XXII LLC d/b/a Compass Self Storage alleging that the Florida corporation failed to provide a safe environment for its business invitees.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 7, 2016, she was lawfully on Amsdell's premises when she fell due to an unmarked, broken, deteriorated and uneven walkway. As a result, she sustained severe and permanent injuries, physical and mental pain and suffering, grief, anguish, loss of earnings and/or permanent aggravation of a pre-existing condition and medical bills.
The plaintiff holds Amsdell Storage Ventures responsible because it allegedly failed to maintain the walkways in a reasonably safe condition, failed to place barricades, warning signs or other marking devices and failed to correct the hazardous condition on the premises.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages, costs and interest from the defendant, together with whatever other relief the Court deems just. She is represented by Jessica J. Gonzalez-Monge of Rubenstein Law PA in Orlando.
