A restaurant customer is suing Taco Bell of America LLC for alleged negligence.
The man filed a complaint on July 21 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that Taco Bell failed to provide a safe environment for its patrons.
According to the complaint, the man alleges that he was walking towards the exit of the restaurant on Sept. 2, 2016 when he slipped and fell on a puddle of water on the floor. He allegedly suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, the aggravation of a pre-existing condition, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish and medical expenses.
The man holds Taco Bell responsible for allegedly failing to warn him of the dangerous condition, and for allegedly failing to train its employees to properly maintain and inspect the obstructed walkway.
Restaurants, including fast food chains, owe a duty of care to people who visit their properties. Customers have the right to expect a store owner and manager to maintain safe conditions in these establishments.
