While exiting Logan's Roadhouse, Sharon Litchfield tripped over the foot of a restaurant employee.

On June 7 she filed suit against Logan's Roadhouse and three of its employees, Jeremy Durgin, Kristine Brand and Byron Bluitt, in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on May 3, 2010, Litchfield was exiting the restaurant through the waiting area when "Durgin stepped backwards tripping her with his foot, causing her to fall to the floor."

The suit does not describe Litchfield's alleged injuries or how the other two employees were involved.

However, the suit does allege that the Logan's Roadhouse employees failed to lookout for the safety of patrons, acted carelessly and failed to pay attention to their surroundings.

The suit also accuses Logan's of negligently hiring and training its staff.

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

She is represented by the Law Offices of Jason Cansler in Beaumont.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. D190-225
