A Jefferson County woman sustained severe and disabling injuries after falling while eating at Taco Bell, according to a recently filed lawsuit.

Barbara Guillory filed a lawsuit Sept. 8 in Jefferson County District Court against Taco Bell. 

In her complaint, Guillory claims she was eating with her husband at the Taco Bell located at 6365 Phelan Blvd. in Beaumont on June 28 when she attempted to refill her drink. As she was at the drink station, Guillory slipped and fell on a greasy and slimy substance on the floor, according to the complaint.

Because of her fall, Guillory incurred medical costs, endured physical pain and mental anguish and suffered disfigurement, the suit states.

In her complaint, Guillory seeks an unspecified judgment, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs, attorneys' fees and other relief the court deems just.

Dan Ducote Jr. of Moore Landrey in Beaumont will be representing her.
