While playing on a Chuck E. Cheese ride, Cassandra Diggles' daughter hit her head.

Alleging the popular establishment owed her a duty to warn of the dangers, Diggles filed suit against Chuck E. Cheese on Dec. 22 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court papers show that on Jan. 19, 2009, Diggles and her daughter were at the Beaumont pizza restaurant. Diggles' daughter was playing when she fell and hit her head on the corner of a ride, causing a laceration on her forehead.

"The object had very sharp edges that were not covered," the suit states.

"Plaintiffs would show that defendant owed a duty to the general public ... to protect and safeguard plaintiffs from unreasonably dangerous conditions or to warn of their existence."

Diggles is suing for loss of parental consortium and her daughters mental anguish, impairment, disfigurement and future diminished earning capacity.

She is represented by Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan.

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

Case No. E189-008
