BATON ROUGE – An East Baton Rouge woman is suing the operator of a local McDonald's for injuries she claims she received on its premises.

Ingrid Denise Truvillion filed suit in the 19th Judicial District Court against Valuzzo management, LLC (the owner of the McDonald's) and its insurer. Truvillion claims when she was exiting the McDonald's at 8009 Florida Blvd. in Baton Rouge when she slipped in what is believed to be mop water and fell to the floor. The plaintiff alleges she suffered bodily injuries in the fall including concussion, headaches and neck injuries.

The defendant is accused of not placing a wet floor sign on the mopped area, failing to warn of the danger, failing to monitor spills, failing to clean up spills in a timely manner and creating a hazardous condition.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical expenses, travel expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment and disfigurement, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of support and services.

Truvillion is represented by Joseph C. Possa of Baton Rouge-based Tyler and Possa.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Janice Clark.

Case number 612389.
