HOUSTON – A McDonald's customer alleges a wet floor caused him to fall.
Miguel Escobedo filed a complaint on Sept. 17 in the Harris County District Court against Mojo Jojo LP, McDonald's Corp., et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 16, 2016, he was injured at defendants' McDonald's restaurant in Pasadena when he slipped and fell while walking out of the restroom because of a wet floor that had been mopped. He alleges he sustained injuries resulting in medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss or reduction in earnings as a result of the fall.
