RaceTrac Hit With Another Personal Injury Suit
|Bad gas... station?|
Isaura Velez walked into a Hollywood RaceTrac store in October 2010 but claims that she slipped, fell, and hurt herself, according to a lawsuit recently filed in the Broward County Civil Court.
Velez says that the store, located at 1200 S. Pine Island Road, did not tell her that the floor was wet.
In July, Richard and Susan Gold also filed a lawsuit against RaceTrac.
Their complaint is based on a 2009 incident, when the husband and wife pulled into a RaceTrac filling station at 599 Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach, court documents note.
Richard Gold started to pump gas, putting the nozzle on the auto-fill setting, according to the lawsuit. Gold claims that the pump malfunctioned, as a "high volume of gasoline started spewing" from the tank into the air and onto the ground, around the pump and his vehicle.
Gold says that he slipped and fell on the gas, seriously damaging his neck and back.
Like Velez, Gold is demanding a jury trial.
