Case Number: 0:23-cv-60441
Judge: Rodolfo A. Ruiz, II
Court: United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Broward County)
Plaintiff's Attorney: Chris Kleppin
Defendant's Attorney: Aubrey Omar Dicus, Jr., Howard P. Ross
Description: Fort Lauderdale, Florida personal injury lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a Fair Labor Standards Act and other theories.
The plaintiff, Arnold Moore, alleged that he was injured while working for the defendant, A-Team Trappers, LLC.
Moore claims that he was working as a wildlife removal technician for A-Team Trappers when he was bitten by a raccoon. He alleges that the raccoon was not properly trapped, and that A-Team Trappers was negligent in its handling of the animal.
Moore is seeking damages for his injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. He is also seeking punitive damages, alleging that A-Team Trappers' negligence was willful and wanton.
A-Team Trappers has denied the allegations, stating that Moore was injured due to his own negligence. The company also argues that Moore's injuries were not caused by a raccoon, but by another animal.
Here are some of the key allegations in the lawsuit:
A-Team Trappers was negligent in its handling of the raccoon.
The raccoon was not properly trapped.
Moore was injured as a result of A-Team Trappers' negligence.
Moore's injuries were serious and have caused him significant pain and suffering.
A-Team Trappers should be held liable for Moore's injuries.
The case is still pending, so it is not yet clear how it will be resolved. However, the case raises important questions about the safety of wildlife removal work, and the liability of companies that hire wildlife removal technicians.
