GALVESTON - A Harris County man alleges he suffered a wrist injury last year while using the restroom at the Kemah Boardwalk and is suing Landry's.
In a lawsuit filed Dec. 23, 2013, in Galveston County Court at Law No. 3, Sebastian Kinlaw blames the Sept. 17, 2013, incident on a defective toilet.
Kinlaw says the toilet "tilted to the left" and he was prompted to "put his left hand down to stop the toilet from tilting," claiming he "fractured his left wrist" in the process.
The plaintiff also sustained injuries to his hand, teeth and general body, the original petition adds.
He accuses Landry's of failing to fix the toilet though the defendant knew it presented a danger to him and other guests.
"An example of the defendant's negligent activity would be their failure to monitor the defective toilet," the suit says.
Consequently, the claimant seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Attorney Wes Klinger Jr. of the Wes Klinger Law Office PLLC in Beach City is representing Kinlaw, and Galveston County Court-at-Law No. 3 Judge Kerri M. Foley is presiding over the litigation.
