According to the filing obtained by BocaNewsNow.com and published, in its entirety, below, a valet for American Flyer was in such a hurry to park a car at Boca Raton Regional that he or she sped away while a woman was still helping her father out of the vehicle.
From the suit: “On or about December 11, 2019, Karen Orsak pulled her vehicle up to and parked in front of the valet stand being operated by American Flyer at the entrance to BRRH. The American Flyer valet attendant assisted Karen Orsak in removing a wheelchair from the trunk of the vehicle for the intended use of Joseph C. Orsak, Sr. As the Plaintiff, Karen Orsak, was assisting her father from exiting the backseat of the vehicle and before she had closed the rear door, the valet attendant precipitously pulled the vehicle away from the curb, causing Joseph C. Orsak, Sr., to fall to the ground.”
Attorneys also allege that “Joseph C. Orsak, Sr., sustained serious bodily injuries. Subsequently, on or about January 14, 2020, Joseph C. Orsak, Sr., died.”
The suit states that Boca Raton Regional Hospital was negligent in its management of its valet service.
“The Defendant, BRRH, owed a nondelegable duty of reasonable care to maintain, inspect, and provide reasonably safe valet services on its premises in a reasonably safe manner to ensure the safety of business invitees and/or visitors on its premises… At all times material hereto, BRRH through its contractors, employees, agents, servants and or partners, negligently failed to hire, train, supervise, and/or conduct its on-site valet operations causing Joseph C. Orsak, Sr., to fall and suffer serious injuries.”
Orsak is represented by Concetta Camacho at Steinger, Greene and Feiner.
