ORLANDO — A diner is suing Tijuana Flats Inc., claiming she injured herself at the restaurant after tripping and falling on mats that allegedly were overlapping and caused a "dangerous condition."
Dawn Zuber filed a complaint on Aug. 15, in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Orange County, against Tijuana Flats Inc., alleging that the defendant breached its duty to exercise reasonable care by allowing mats inside its store to overlap and create a trip hazard.
Dawn Zuber allegedly was a guest at the restaurant on March 18, when she claims to have tripped and fell on the mats that allegedly were overlapping.
Zuber claims she sustained injury resulting in pain, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical and nursing care.
The plaintiff holds Tijuana Flats, Inc. responsible, because the defendant allegedly failed to correct a dangerous condition and failed to install, maintain, and provide safe flooring surfaces on its premises.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages, cost of this action, any pre-judgment interest, and such other and further relief as this Court may deem right and just. She is represented by Nicholas D. Seidule of SeiduLaw in Winter Park.
