A mother has filed a slip and fall lawsuit on behalf of her underage son against Burger King. The lawsuit alleges that the boy fell in a Chicago area Burger King in 2003. They are asking for $50,000 in damages.
The plaintiffs allege that Burger King carelessly and negligently maintained the play area and “permitted liquids and food to remain on the floor of the premises causing a hazardous condition to their patrons thereon.” Furthermore, the restaurant allegedly failed to warn patrons of the hazardous condition within the play area.
Burger King has not commented on the lawsuit. The case may be dismissed because of a two year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits. The case has its first court date early next year.
