BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A local woman claims she was critically injured by a swinging kitchen door at popular Flakowitz Deli. She is now suing the restaurant for more than $50,000.

Sheryl Raciti claims in a just-filed lawsuit that Flakowitz Boynton Beach (7410 West Boynton Beach Blvd.) had a duty to tell customers that they could be injured by a swinging kitchen door — a door that servers are constantly rushing through to obtain and serve food. For reasons not stated in the suit, Raciti was apparently near the door when it swung open. She claims that she was, “injured in and about her body and extremities and/or suffered exacerbation of a pre-existing injury or physical condition…”

The suit claims that Flakowitz, among other issues, “failed to ensure that employees properly left and entered the kitchen door, as to not create a hazard and/or dangerous condition; failed to maintain the common areas in a reasonably safe and proper condition, (and) failed to warn Plaintiff Sheryl Raciti of any and all hidden or known dangers.”

The alleged incident occurred just weeks ago — on March 9th, 2023. It is unclear why a suit was filed so quickly, or how Raciti already knows the long term effects of her alleged injuries. Attorneys for Flakowitz had not responded to the suit though a public filing as of early Wednesday, April 5, 2023. Raciti is represented by Attorney Sharlene Kosto of Boca Raton.
