Woman Sues Self-Storage Management LLC for Negligence


Self-Storage Management LLC is being sued for negligence by a woman who claims she was injured by a falling tree branch while on one of the company’s properties on Nov. 26, 2015. The lawsuit was filed in August by Judith Lawrence in Broward County, Fla., Circuit Court. The complaint alleges the company failed to maintain the property in a safe condition.

The suit alleges Self Storage Management failed to “maintain and repair fixtures on the property, follow standard operating procedures and train staff to identify potentially hazardous conditions,” the source reported.

Lawrence claims she was hit by the branch along her upper back and neck area. As a result, she suffered severe injuries, emotional and physical pain, and incurred lost wages and medical expenses, according to the complaint.

She’s suing for damages in excess of $15,000 in addition to costs, interest, compensatory and punitive damages. Her attorneys, Paul A. Galsterer and Miguel A. Coder of The Injury Firm PA in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., have requested a trial by jury, according to the source.
