A woman in another state recently claimed that she was injured at a Texas Roadhouse in a slip-and-fall accident. She has thus filed a premises liability suit against the national chain, seeking damages. Anyone in California who likewise suffers injuries in this type of accident, stemming from a business property owner's negligence, has the right to seek justice through the civil court system.
According to the woman's lawsuit, she was dining at Texas Roadhouse one day and ended up slipping and falling on a slippery or wet substance that had been left on the floor. The woman asserted that the fall caused her to suffer injuries and pain. She also allegedly suffered disability, scarring and disfigurement.
The accident reportedly caused the woman to suffer mental anguish, and she has thus lost her ability to enjoy her life to the fullest. Furthermore, the woman claimed that the accident caused her to accrue medical costs as well as lose income. According to the woman, the restaurant is liable for her injuries because it did not have enough staff inspecting as well as maintaining the eatery's premises. In addition, the company is accused of not providing warning signs about the slippery substance that allegedly caused her to fall.
As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking a jury trial along with more than $15,000 in damages. An understanding of what facts must be proved will likely be critical for prevailing in this type of premises liability lawsuit in California. Fortunately, an attorney can help those who have been injured in these situations to confidently pursue the maximum amount of damages to which they are entitled, given the circumstances surrounding their injury-causing accidents.
