CLEARWATER — A visitor is suing a Clearwater residence owner, alleging his negligence led to him falling on the plaintiff.
Melissa Marler filed a complaint Dec. 21 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Kurt Saunier, alleging failure to exercise reasonable care to conduct himself in a safe manner around third parties.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 6, 2015, Marler was visiting Saunier at his then-residence at 2460 Northside Drive, Apt. 1203 ,in Clearwater. The sit says Saunier caused himself to become unstable on his feet and he fell onto Marler, causing her to be injured in and about her body and suffer disability, mental anguish and loss of the ability to enjoy life.
The plaintiff alleges Saunier failed to conduct himself safely and/or appropriately and failed to warn Marler of his inability to conduct himself safely in order to avoid injuring the plaintiff.
Marler seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, exclusive of costs and interest. She is represented by attorney Eduardo R. Latour of Latour & Associates PA in Tarpon Springs.
