ORLANDO — A visitor is suing the Orange County public school system, alleging negligence led to injuries for the plaintiff.

Lenore Gibson filed a complaint Nov. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against Orange County Public Schools, alleging it allowed a slippery substance to remain on the floor.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 10, 2015, Lenore Gibson was legally upon the defendant's premises at John Young Elementary School in Orlando. The suit says Gibson slipped and fell on a puddle of water and/or clear slippery substance that was inside the school. 

As a result, Gibson says she sustained physical injuries, causing her pain, inconvenience and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the Orange County Public Schools failed to maintain its facility, walkways, pathways and parking lot on its property in a reasonably safe condition by allowing a puddle of water and/or clear slippery substance located inside the school.

Gibson seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, exclusive of interest and court costs. She is represented by attorney Mark A. Matovina of Politis & Matovina PA in Port Orange.
