GALVESTON - A Georgia man blames Caribbean Breeze Boat Rental for injuries he claims to have sustained while on its premises back in October.

According to a lawsuit filed Jan. 7 in Galveston County Court at Law No. 2, Cumming, Ga., resident Lynwood Gamble was helping one of the defendant's employees carry a kayak down to the water when the former fell.

Gamble asserts a makeshift dock he was on was not tied down at the time of incident in question.

"The makeshift dock that was not tied down on the premises of Caribbean Breeze Boat Rental posed an unreasonable risk of harm because individuals walking down to the water, especially carrying a kayak may trip and fall on the makeshift dock that was not tied down through no fault of their own and severely injure themselves," the original petition says.

Consequently, the complainant sues for pain and suffering, disfigurement, impairment and lost earnings.

He is represented by attorney Jeffrey N. Todd of The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd in Friendswood.

The case has been assigned to Galveston County Court-at-Law No. 2 Judge Barbara Roberts.

Cause No. 71,346
