Iowa Man Suing Steakhouse After Slipping On Peanuts
An Iowa man is suing Texas Roadhouse after he says he slipped on peanut shells and shattered his knee in four places. 49-year-old Curt Jensen from Tama County claims he slipped on the peanuts at the Texas Roadhouse in Cedar Falls in February of 2015.
The lawsuit says that Texas Roadhouse knows that the peanut shells are a hazard to customers. Jensen is seeking money to cover his physical damage, medical expenses, loss of earning potential, and punitive damages.
This isn't the first time the restaurant chain has bee sued over peanuts. In 2008 and 2013 two Texas women sued Texas Roadhouse for slipping on peanut shells.
