ORLANDO — A season pass holder is suing a Walt Disney water taxi operator, alleging negligence led to injuries.
Kristine Benesh filed a complaint Sept. 6 in Orange County Circuit Court against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. Inc., alleging a water taxi operator failed to exercise the highest degree of care in order to prevent injuries to its passengers.
According to the complaint, on May 21, 2017, Benesh was a guest at Walt Disney World Theme Park. Pursuant to instructions from the defendant’s employees, a guest operating an electric scooter negligently attempted to park in the back of a water taxi and struck Benesh in the leg.
She said she sustained bodily injury, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, the expenses of hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment, plus the loss of earnings. The plaintiff alleges Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S.'s employees negligently maintained or controlled the boarding procedure of the electric scooter.
Benesh seeks trial by jury and damages of more than $15,000. She is represented by attorney Brian T. Wilson of Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos in Orlando.
