While coming out of the rain into a McDonald's, Adrienne Casimire slipped in a puddle of water. She is suing the fast food restaurant, claiming the establishment negligently failed to warn her.

Casimire's suit against R.E.E. (McDonald's) was filed Sept. 9 in Jefferson County District Court.

In her suit, Casimire says she went to the MLK Parkway McDonald's in Beaumont on Jan. 31, 2008. As she entered the restaurant, she slipped and fell, injuring her back and knees.

"It had been raining for a considerable time prior to plaintiff's entrance into defendant's premises, and the floor near the entrance had been wet for almost all of that time," the suit says.

"There were no warning signs, no wet floor signs and no non-slip surface or rug in place to warn plaintiff of the wet floor or prevent such falls."

Casimire is suing for past and future mental anguish, medical expenses and pain.

She is demanding a trial by jury and is represented by Kenneth Lewis of the Bush Lewis law firm.

The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield of the 136th Judicial District.

Case No. D182-387
