BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man claims he was critically injured after buying art at the Lord and Taylor in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park.
In a lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, attorneys for Curtis Rossband say the man purchased two “8 foot by 10 foot paintings which weighed approximately 40 pounds each.”
“After the purchase,” wrote attorneys, “Rossband was instructed by one of (the Lord and Taylor employees) to proceed to the loading dock, located in th back of the store, to load the painting into (his) vehicle. As Rossband made his way towards the loading dock, while carrying the heavy paintings, one of (Lord and Taylor employees) informed Rossband that customers are responsible for unloading their own purchased items from the loading dock and into their vehicles.”
Then, according to the suit, came the injury.
“Rossband attempted to step down from the loading dock. In doing so, Rossband slipped and fell backwards, striking his head on a piece of metal prior to his body landing hard on the slippery pavement, causing him serious injuries.”
Rossband seeks in excess of $30,000 — the statutory minimum for Palm Beach County circuit court.
He is represented by Fesner Petion at the law firm of Fesner Petion, P.A. In Avenutra.
