GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish woman is suing a Harahan Applebee's after she was allegedly severely injured after slipping in oil on the floor.
Sylvia Parker filed suit against Southern River Restaurants LLC, Applebee’s and Franchise Risk Solutions in the 24th Judicial District Court on March 26.
Parker claims that she was a patron at the Applebee’s located at 1200 S. Clearview Parkway in Harahan when she slipped in oil and fell to the floor. The plaintiff alleges that she received severe injuries to her neck, back and knees in the fall.
