CLEARWATER — A Massachusetts guest is suing the owners and supervisor of a St. Petersburg Hampton Inn, alleging negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.
John Antonoupolis of Rockingham County, Massachusetts, filed a complaint on March 16 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Florencia Park LLC and Highpointe Hotel Corporation, alleging they failed to keep the hotel in reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, on March 5, 2017, Antonoupolis entered the Hampton Inn & Suits by Hilton 80 Beach Drive, St. Petersburg. The suit says Antonoupolis slipped and fell due to a liquid that had accumulated on the floor of the hotel.
As a result, Antonoupolis says he sustained serious and permanent bodily injuries, causing him pain and suffering and expenses for hospitalization.
The plaintiff alleges Florencia Park and Highpointe Hotel failed to provide a uniformly slip-resistant floor, failed to properly train /educate/supervise/control its employees, and failed to correct and to warn of an unreasonably dangerous condition.
Antonoupolis seeks trial by jury, judgment in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court, plus court costs and any further relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by attorney Timothy C. Felice of Felice & Ehrlich in Palm Beach Gardens.
