ORLANDO — A Georgia man is suing Orlando hotel operators, alleging negligence and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Zachary Williams filed a complaint Dec. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against 7450 Augusta LP, Staybridge Suites, et al, alleging failure to maintain the hotel premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 18, 2015, Williams and his family members were guests at the defendants' Orlando Staybridge hotel when he began to feel sick, weakness in his legs, rapid heartbeat, drowsiness and dizziness. The suit says Williams became permanently disabled and unable to function normally due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to prevent a carbon monoxide leak, failed to provide adequate ventilation for their hotel and failed to warn its patrons of dangerous conditions.
Williams seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, exclusive of interest, court costs and attorney fees and all other proper and just relief. He is represented by attorneys Griffith J. Winthrop III of Alvarez, Winthrop, Thompson & Storey PA in Orlando, and by John K. Overchuck of Overchuck Law Firm in Orlando.
