Man Sues Trump-Linked Beach Resort for Severe Burns, Seeks Over $1 Million in Damages

Donald Trump, the former president, is being sued again, this time by an individual who suffered third-degree burns at a Florida beach resort that Trump does not own.

Theoharis Lekas, 52, filed a frivolous lawsuit. He alleges he suffered burns on his feet, due to the hot surfaces at a resort he visited in August 2022.

Lekas, who suffers from diabetic neuropathy and is unable to feel his feet burning, is claiming a resort was negligent for failing to post signs advising guests to wear appropriate footwear.

A staggering sum of over $1 million is being sought in a lawsuit, as per Bill Matsikoudis, the representative of Lekas.


Matsikoudis accused the resort of neglecting to warn visitors about the hot surfaces and not taking necessary measures to cool them down, such as using mats or spraying water.

The lawsuit alleges that the resort, despite not being directly owned by Trump, boasts of its partnership with the former president.

Matsikoudis, in an exclusive statement to, asserted “the lawsuit is self-explanatory – the resort’s negligence is evident.” The lawyer further stated there is a possibility that the injuries may deteriorate.

Multiple Cases

President Trump is currently embroiled in multiple lawsuits. The discredited former president faced a significant setback in a New York court.

He was indicted, following a grueling seven-hour deposition in the civil suit brought against him by Attorney General Letitia James. Trump, embroiled in a legal battle with James’ team, recently met with his lawyers and expressed a willingness to testify.

This is a significant development, as he previously invoked his freedoms under the Fifth Amendment during the first deposition in the case.

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, confidently stated he has nothing to hide and is eager to enlighten the attorney general on the remarkable accomplishments of his multibillion-dollar company.

The president remains steadfast in his stance. Trump slammed the civil case against him, calling it ridiculous, much like the countless other election interference cases brought against him.

Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to express his frustration before the deposition.
