Woman suing Taco Bell after slip and fall accident

Like any other business open to the public, restaurants in Washington, D.C. are expected to be kept safe by their owners and operators. Because of alleged failure to uphold these reasonable expectations, a woman in another state is suing the operator of a Taco Bell, the nationwide fast food franchise. She claims that the operator's negligence caused her to suffer injuries in a slip and fall accident.

The injured woman filed a complaint against the Taco Bell operator, Charter Foods Inc. As per the suit, in June 2105, the woman had purchased a meal at a Taco Bell restaurant. As she was exiting, she slipped and fell forcefully, due to a wet floor, according to the complaint.

The injuries she suffered have caused the woman pain and suffering and resulted in medical expenses as well as a loss of enjoyment of life. The woman claims that the defendant had not posted any signs warning that the floor in that area was wet or slippery. For this, the suit alleges a breach of fiduciary duty on the part of the defendant, Charter Foods, as it failed to maintain reasonably safe conditions.

For her injuries and pain and suffering, the woman is seeking a trial by jury. She requests damages in excess of all court costs and expenses, as well as other just and equitable relief. As anyone who has suffered a bad fall likely knows, the lingering physical pain and complications can be agonizing and ongoing, and medical treatment may be required for months afterwards -- if not more – at a potentially hefty cost. As such, residents of Washington, D.C. who have had a slip and fall accident at a business due to the negligence of the owner or operators may wish to discuss options for justice and compensation with an experienced premises liability attorney.
