A Jefferson County woman claims she was injured after she slipped on a puddle of water in McDonalds.

On July 17, Amy Nicole Keys was shopping inside the Wal-Mart Supercenter at 4999 Twin City Highway and stopped at the McDonalds located inside the store, according to the complaint filed Feb. 18 in Jefferson County District Court.

While inside the fast food restaurant, Keys slipped in a puddle of water on the floor and fell, the suit states.

Because of the fall, Keys claims she sustained severe physical pain and mental anguish and incurred medical expenses.

She also lost her earning capacity, according to the complaint.

McDonalds was negligent by failing to provide adequate warning signs, by failing to inspect the premises, by failing to discover the dangerous conditions, by failing to properly maintain the premises and by failing to remedy the dangerous condition, the suit states.

Keys is seeking a judgment in excess of the jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief to which she is entitled.

J. Trenton Bond of Reaud, Morgan and Quinn in Beaumont will be representing her.

The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.

Case No. E183-316
