Unless the case is mediated by March, a slip-and-fall lawsuit filed against a local Texas Roadhouse restaurant will go to trial in April 2012.

As previously reported, on Feb. 28 plaintiff Lindsay Boggs filed suit against the Texas Roadhouse in Port Arthur, claiming she slipped and fell at the restaurant because of a dangerous condition.

On July 15 a discovery control plan order was filed in the case, slating an April trial if the parties fail to mediate on or before February 29, 2012, court papers say.

Court records show that on Dec. 23, 2009, Boggs was dining at the establishment when she slipped and fell.

The suit alleges the incident transpired through no negligence on her behalf and that Texas Roadhouse negligently failed to remedy the unknown "dangerous condition."

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

Beaumont attorney John Lane of Provost Umphrey represents her.

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

Case No. A189-474
