A former waitress for Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar is suing the restaurant for injuries she received after slipping on the kitchen floor.

Seeking exemplary damages for her injury, Amanda Beuhler filed suit against RC Port Arthur, doing business as Buffalo Wild Wings, on Dec. 13 in Jefferson County District Court. 

According to the lawsuit, on Dec. 9, 2012, Beuhler went to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Beaumont to retrieve her work schedule. As she entered the kitchen area, she slipped and fell on a freshly degreased, mopped and slippery floor, breaking her ankle in the process.

The suit says no warning signs were posted in the area and accuses the defendant of negligently failing to warn the plaintiff.

On top of exemplary damages, the plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages.

She is represented by Joe Dodson, attorney for the Beaumont law firm Strong Pipkin Bissell & Ledyard.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A195-041
