By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Jan 6, 2019

CLEARWATER — A woman is suing the City of Clearwater, citing alleged negligence.

Dawn Hartley filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the Pinellas County Circuit Court against the City of Clearwater alleging that as a property operator it failed to provide a safe environment for its business invitees.

According to the complaint, Hartley alleges that on March 21, 2017, while she was walking through Enterprise Dog Park, which was maintained and operated by the defendant, she fell into a large eroded hole next to the benches and fell to the ground; she suffered bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previously existing condition. 

The plaintiff holds the City of Clearwater responsible because it allegedly failed to maintain its premises in a safe condition, failed to warn invitees of the concealed peril and failed to take proper and timely actions to reduce, minimize or eliminate foreseeable risks.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages that exceed $15,000. She is represented by Harmony J. Widman of Lucas / Magazine PLLC in Newport Richey.
