Most of us at some point in our lives have visited a fast food establishment to satisfy a craving or two. As customers, many of us simply want to get the meal, drink, sit, enjoy it and leave. No one ever expects such a simple visit to a fast food establishment to turn into an unexpected slip and fall accident with injuries. However, there are cases where a customer has been injured at such an establishment because the property owner failed to keep the premises free of recognized hazards, such as a slippery floor.

In fact, recently a woman filed a lawsuit against the well-known Mexican fast food restaurant Taco Bell after she allegedly slipped and fell on some slick substance on the floor. According to the woman’s complaint, the incident occurred when her spouse and she were eating at Taco Bell. The woman claims that she went to refill her drink at the designated drink station when she slipped on some sort of slippery substance on the floor.

The woman alleges that as a result of the fall she not only suffered physical pain and mental anguish, but now also has medical costs resulting from the injuries she suffered. Additionally, she is suing for disfigurement. She is seeking an unspecified judgment, attorney fees, court costs and any other relief as the court deems appropriate.

Taco Bell representatives in their answer to the complaint have asserted general denial. Further, the restaurant is claiming that the woman is barred under the doctrine of comparative fault, in essence stating that they do not have any responsibility for her damages.
