A Beaumont Mexican restaurant is being sued after a customer allegedly slipped, fell and was injured on the premises. 

Michael Marse filed suit against La Cantina Mexican Grill on March 5 in the Jefferson County District Court, citing negligence. 

Marse says on Feb. 2, 2013, he was at La Cantina on Dowlen Road in Beaumont when he encountered a foreign substance. He claims when he stepped on the substance he slipped, fell and sustained serious injuries, which required surgery.

Marse is seeking more than $1 million in damages.

He is being represented by attorney Curtis Leister of Reaud, Morgan and Quinn LLP.
