A woman claiming she slipped and fell in a recently mopped area two years ago has filed suit against the owners of a McDonald's Restaurant franchise.

Beaumont resident Eva Boudreaux filed her suit against R.E.E. Inc. and manager Elise Batiste on April 6 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, on April 23, 2009, Boudreaux was dining at the McDonald's on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Beaumont. On her way back from the condiments counter she claims she slipped in a puddle of water, causing her to fall and injure herself.

"Prior to her return, an employee had walked by the area with a soaked mop that he had used to clean up a spill," the suit states. "No wet signs were present at the time of plaintiff's fall."

The suit accuses the defendants of failing to remedy a dangerous condition and warn customers of the danger.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Jonathan Juhan represents her.

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

Case No. E189-720
