A couple has brought a lawsuit against a Galveston County restaurant for alleged injuries incurred by their child in 2015.

Jamison Filer and Elizabeth Filer filed suit individually and as next friend of their minor child against Qun Group LLC, d/b/a 528 Asian Bistro of Friendswood, in Galveston County District Court May 11, claiming liability in their child’s January 2015 injuries.

According to the filing, the minor child was scalded by hot water in the Asian Bistro’s restroom on or about Jan. 20, 2015. The suit states that the hot water directed to the restroom facilities was on the same line as that feeding the kitchen.

Court documents state that the kitchen water line is much hotter than that which should be provided to the lavatories.

The plaintiffs claim that the restaurant failed to prevent scalding water from exiting the restroom taps, leading to the minor’s burns. Alleging negligence, the Filers cite past and future pain, suffering, medical costs and disfigurement on behalf of the child.

The couple seeks recovery of damages in an amount within the court’s jurisdictional limits, along with pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees, expenses and costs.

The plaintiffs are represented by Kevin Madden of the Law Offices of Kevin Michael Madden in Houston.
