BEAUMONT – A woman is seeking up to $1 million in damages from Chick-fil-A for injuries she allegedly received when she tripped while traversing the restaurant’s drive-thru.
Tammy Jones filed her suit June 24 in Jefferson County District Court, also naming Robert Henckel, doing business as Chick-fil-A #03312, as a defendant.
According to her lawsuit, on Aug. 5, 2017, Jones was walking to the Chick-fil-A on College Street for lunch when she tripped on a curb behind the restaurant.
“There was nothing demarcating the raised barrier between the drive-through lanes,” the suit states. “As a result of the Defendants’ negligent conduct, failing to construct and maintain a safe and flat drive-through lane or a painted curb barrier between the … lanes resulted in Plaintiff’s injury.”
Jones is suing for her mental anguish, medical expenses, impairment, disfigurement, loss of earnings, and loss of household services.
Dallas attorney Scott Lidji represents her.
Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. A-204005
