Customer alleges hardware store's negligence cause fall on dangerous walkway/aisle

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Sep 17, 2018

ORLANDO — A customer is suing a St. Petersburg Ace hardware store, alleging negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.

Sue Devale Carter filed a complaint Sept. 6 in Orange County Circuit Court against Vision Ace Hardware LLC, alleging the defendant allowed a dangerous condition to exist on the premises for a sufficient length of time, causing injuries to the plaintiff.

According to the complaint, on Dec. 16, 2016, Carter was at Vision Ace Hardware, 2739 Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg, when she tripped and fell due to a partially blocked walkway/aisle. 

Carter says a green storage container was placed in the walkway/aisle, thereby creating a dangerous and hazardous condition. As a result, Carter says she sustained physical injuries, suffered a physical handicap, her working ability was impaired and she incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges Vision Ace Hardware failed to adequately warn business invitees about the negligent condition and failed to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition for its intended use.

Carter seeks trial by jury and damages in excess of $15,000. She is represented by attorneys Drew Ben Hodgins and Kenneth A. Minio of Zephyrhills.
