Whittel & Melton, LLC issued the following announcement on Aug. 28.
A diner is suing Tijuana Flats Inc., claiming she injured herself at the restaurant after tripping and falling on mats that were overlapping and caused a dangerous condition.
The woman filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in Orange County against Tijuana Flats Inc., alleging that the restaurant breached its duty to exercise reasonable care by allowing mats inside its store to overlap and create a trip hazard.
She claims she sustained injury resulting in pain, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical and nursing care.
The lawsuit holds Tijuana Flats, Inc. responsible, because the restaurant allegedly failed to correct a dangerous condition and failed to install, maintain, and provide safe flooring surfaces on its premises.
