Zagoria Law, an Atlanta-based law firm specializing in personal injury cases, today announced it has filed a suit in the State Court of Dekalb County, civil action file number 15A57453E5, on behalf of client Donna Humble. The suit alleges that the negligence of Epps 57th Restaurant, LLC (hereinafter called “Defendant”) was the proximate cause of injuries Humble sustained during a fall in February, 2014. Zagoria is seeking an undetermined amount of damages for Humble, which will include the $80,928.00 in medical, hospital, nursing, medication and miscellaneous expenses she has accrued so far as a result of her injuries.
“A 2011 report from the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety noted that ‘the restaurant industry is among those most burdened by injuries from same-level slips and falls,’” said Zagoria Law Founder and Principal David Zagoria. “Most of those injuries are to restaurant workers, but guests can also be injured by these hazards.”
According to the filing, Humble was an invited visitor to the 57th Fighter Group restaurant, owned and operated by Epps 57th Restaurant, LLC, when she slipped and fell on a piece of clear tape that was covering a “rut or hole” in the floor. The suit alleges that both the rut or hole and the tape created hazardous conditions. It further alleges, among other assertions:
- Defendant had actual and/or constructive knowledge of the dangerous conditions created thereby.
- Defendant, having actual and/or constructive knowledge, either failed to take any action or failed to take adequate action to remedy the dangerous condition.
- The failure of Defendant to remedy the dangerous condition created by the aforementioned hazards amounts to negligence.
- Defendant was further negligent in failing to warn Plaintiff of the dangerous conditions created by the aforementioned hazards.
“Per Department of Labor statistics, slips, trips, and falls are one of most frequently-reported injuries and make up approximately 25% of reported claims each year, ” said Zagoria. “We seek to identify the parties at fault for Ms. Humble’s fall and obtain fair and just compensation for her.”
