DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County man allegedly tripped and fell after returning from the bathroom at City Oyster Bar, 213 East Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. The fall, he claims, was so severe that it caused traumatic injury to his shoulder.

Michael Bloom claims that the ”elevation change” between the bathroom and the dining area at City Oyster Bar is unsafe, and that employees did nothing at the restaurant to make it safe. He suing the restaurant owner, Big Time Restaurant Group, claiming it is responsible for his August, 2021 fall.

“Michael Bloom left the elevated seating area to use the restroom,” wrote attorneys in the lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. ”As he was returning to the area where he was seated, he had to traverse across a dark brown rug to reach the elevated area. He tripped and fell in this area suffering acute traumatic injuries to his right shoulder.”

The suit claims that Bloom’s fall induced, ”pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, significant and permanent scarring, loss of capacity for enjoyment of life,” and more. He and wife Candice Saketkoo, also named in the suit, seek in excess of $30,000 — the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

Bloom is represented by Zappitell Law Firm in Delray Beach. Big Time Restaurants had not filed a response to the suit as of Tuesday morning, June 21st, 2022.
