Lake Mary Man Files Personal Injury Lawsuit Against Upscale Apartment Complex

An Orlando area man injured in a gas grill explosion last July recently filed a lawsuit against the upscale Station House Apartments complex where he suffered his personal injury. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Oviedo High School teacher was with his son and a friend when he suffered first and second degree burns after the gas grill he attempted to light suddenly blew up.

The force of the blast was so powerful it knocked the plaintiff unconscious and sent the gas grill flying into the air. Another gas grill nearby also blew up in the accident. The explosion also caused superficial damage to the brick exterior housing the gas grills. Fire department officials say the blast occurred after the gas line to the grill was left on by a previous user.

The victim’s lawsuit alleges the upscale Orlando area apartment complex should have taken reasonable steps to protect residents by turning off the gas grills when not in use or provide warning to others the gas grills may be left on by other residents. The plaintiff alleges he missed work as an Uber driver due to injuries to his feet and legs and seeks $15,000 in damages.

Florida Premises Liability Lawsuits

Florida law allows victims hurt by the negligence of property owners to file personal injury lawsuits against property owners who fail to take reasonable steps to ensure visitors are not placed at undue risk of injury. Painful injuries may cause injury victims to miss work, incur huge medical expenses, and suffer through emotional and physical pain.

Property owners who fail to maintain a safe and secure establishment may be held responsible for their actions. Injury victims hurt by the negligence of property owners may be able to collect for their damages if it can be demonstrated to courts the defendant knew or should have known about a potential hazard but did not take steps to correct it.

While many property owners carry property insurance in cases of injuries caused by their own negligence, they may not be forthcoming with the type of compensation injury victims and their families need to be made whole again. In these situations, it may be necessary to retain the services of an experienced premises liability and personal injury lawyer.
