It has been determined that a Michigan woman who suffered a broken hand while reaching for toilet paper may file suit against a restaurant over her personal injury.

 

The Michigan Supreme Court is divided over the case. The liberal majority says a jury should determine whether the dispenser created an unreasonable risk of harm at a Texas Roadhouse in Taylor, Michigan.

 

However, the three conservative justices argue that there should not be liability over ordinary accidents.

 

The woman, 58-year-old Sheri Schooley, called the incident “a bizarre story.” She said the dispenser’s cover fell on her right hand, breaking it.

 

Schooley said the injury has caused her to be unable to perform her duties as an administrative assistant because she is unable to type. She also said her bowling average dropped by 40 pins because she was forced to swap hands.

 

A lower court refused to dismiss the suit.
