In addition to providing food and drinks, restaurants offer their customers a comfortable place to relax and spend time with friends and family. They are a classic social venue in our society, and patrons expect an environment conducive to that end. Accordingly, chefs, waiters, and management must work together to ensure that customers have as enjoyable an experience as possible. Sometimes, however, restaurants can be negligent in monitoring their service or their food, and injury can result. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
According to a recently filed lawsuit, Missouri based restaurant Lamberts Café, in Ozark, Missouri, was negligent in serving rolls to a mentally disabled veteran that were extremely hot. The customer apparently clenched one of the rolls in his hand, and immediately had to be taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with second degree burns. Lamberts has declined to comment.
The burn victim, Nathanael Smith, is a 22-year old veteran who was discharged from the army after a training accident left him mentally disabled. According to reports, Mr. Smith was handed a plate that was far too hot, and then in response clutched the roll, which led to his burns. Smith and his family are originally from Florida, and plan to aggressively pursue this claim against the restaurant.
