Dana Wilson filed a lawsuit Aug. 13 in Galveston County District Court against Robert Flores, doing business as McDonald's No. 17796. 

According to the complaint, Wilson walked into the LaMarque McDonald's in August 2013 and fell after slipping on some water that had been left on the floor. Flores, the owner of the restaurant, is accused of negligence for allegedly failing to clean up the water and not warning customers of the danger.
