CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County man is suing a Pinellas Park fraternal order, alleging negligence and premises liability.
Charles Acheson filed a complaint Jan. 15 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Pinellas Park Fraternal Order of Eagles No. 4250 Inc., alleging failure to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 13, 2016, Acheson was lawfully upon the Order of Eagles' premises at 3451 63rd Ave. N., Pinellas Park, when he slipped and fell on water leaking from a cooler. He says he sustained bodily injuries, resulting in pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish and expenses for hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment.
The plaintiff alleges Pinellas Park Fraternal Order of Eagles No. 4250 failed to inspect, maintain or repair the cooler, negligently allowed water leaking from a defective cooler to accumulate on the floor and failed to provide adequate warning of the dangerous condition.
Acheson seeks trial by jury and damages in excess of $15,000. He is represented by attorney Michael C. Peckham of Schwed, Adams & McGinIey PA in Palm Beach Gardens.
