GRETNA – A Metairie restaurant is being sued by a man who claims it is responsible for injuries he claims to have received in a parking lot because because there was not adequate lighting in the area.
Roy Wayne Dunn filed suit against Carreta’s Grill of Metairie LLC and Merle A. Segura in the 24th Judicial District Court on March 16.
Dunn contends that after he dined with a group at Carreta’s Grill located at 2320 Veterans Blvd. in Metairie he exited the establishment and entered the restaurant’s unlighted rear parking lot. The plaintiff asserts that while crossing a walkway in the parking lot he fell due to the lack of proper lighting. Dunn claims he received injuries to his face, skull, neck, back and body for which he had to be transported to the hospital by ambulance and continues to suffer from permanent pain.
The defendant is accused of failing to act with due care, failing to maintain the premises in a lighted and obstruction free manner, failing to warn of a dangerous condition, failing to inspect the area and allowing an unreasonably dangerous condition to exist.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages and lost earning capacity.
Dunn is represented by Frank C. Dudenhefer Jr. of New Orleans-based The Dudenhefer Law Firm LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry G. Sullivan Jr.
Case no. 747-680.
