NEW ORLEANS– A Texas woman is suing a local steakhouse after falling in the restaurant last year.
Roseanne Lewis filed suit against Magazine Steakhouse LLC, its management and insurer in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Jan. 3.
In the suit, Lewis claims that she was injured after slipping and falling on Jan. 8, 2012. The fall was allegedly caused by a hazardous substance on the floor. The plaintiff’s injuries include hip contusions, hand contusion, a back injury, bruising and swelling, the suit claims.
The defendant is accused of negligence for creating a hazardous condition for patrons, failing to mitigate a hazardous condition, failing to adequately warn patrons of a hazardous condition and for failing to provide adequate cleanup procedures.
An unspecified amount of damages is sought for physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical expenses and lost wages.
Lewis is represented by Scott P. Shea of the New Orleans-based Shea Law Offices.
The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Ethel S. Julien.
Case No. 2013-00044.
