FORT LAUDERDALE – A Pizza Hut delivery driver alleges he was injured while making a delivery when the customers turned off an exterior light before he descended a set of steps, causing him to fall.
David Walker filed a complaint on April 11 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court of Broward County against Caron and Reza Hojjati alleging they failed to maintain the premises in a safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that at 11 p.m. on Aug. 13, 2015, he was delivering pizza to defendants' Plantation home and he slipped and fell while descending the dark, wet and uneven tiled steps as soon as the defendants turned off the exterior lights.
The plaintiff holds Caron and Reza Hojjati responsible because the defendants allegedly created a dangerous condition by turning off the lights, failed to warn plaintiff of the slippery tiles, failed to correct the dangerous condition of the tiles, and failed to protect plaintiff from foreseeable risks.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages of more than $15,000, plus interest and costs. He is represented by Michael Cecere of Cecere Santana PA in Plantation.
