CLEARWATER — A Madeira Beach man is suing Clearwater Beach boat adventure company, alleging an unsafe work environment led to injuries.
Jerome W. McFarlane III filed a complaint Nov. 12 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Clearwater Jetski and Parasail LLC, alleging failure to exercise reasonable care in providing a reasonably safe workplace.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 27, McFarlane was working within the scope of his employment at Clearwater Jetski's floating structure in Clearwater Beach when his foot went into a crevice.
