An Orange County woman has filed suit against Carraba/Outback, alleging she was injured after she fell on the floor at one of its restaurants.
Summer Miller was eating at the Carraba's Italian Grill in Beaumont on Sept. 20, 2007, when she slipped and fell because of a "dangerous condition on the premises," the complaint filed Oct. 23 in Jefferson County District Court states.
Miller's injuries are permanent and have caused her great physical and mental pain, suffering and anguish, according to the complaint.
She also claims she has incurred substantial medical costs and has lost earnings, plus her ability to administer to the needs of herself and of her family has been greatly diminished.
She claims the restaurant was negligent because it failed to keep its floors clean, dry and safe, allowed a slip hazard to remain on the floor, failed to inspect the premises to discover the slipping hazard and failed to correct the dangerous condition.
In addition, the restaurant negligently failed to correct the dangerous condition and failed to warn patrons of the slipping hazard, the suit states.
Miller is seeking unspecified damages, pre- and post-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.
She is represented by B. Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups and Terrell in Beaumont.
The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.
Case No. E182-581
