A man claims he sustained personal injuries in the form of a tear in the cartilage in his knee after falling while attempting to repair a soda fountain machine at a Jack in the Box restaurant.


On February 17, Leon Elgin filed suit in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court, naming Jack in the Box as a defendant.


According to Elgin, he was trying to either repair or replace a soda fountain machine at a Jack in the Box in Granite City, Illinois on April 30, 2009 when the incident took place.


The suit said that as Elgin was walking across the restaurant floor, liquid and/or grease on the floor caused him to slip and fall.


Elgin claims the fall caused him to suffer a torn and fractured chondral of the right lateral tibial plateau and suffer physical pain and mental anguish. Additionally, he has suffered impairment to the full motion of his right knee and leg, lost wages and his ability to enjoy life and engage in activities, and incurred medical expenses.


The suit alleges negligence on the part of Jack in the Box for failure to place warning signs or markers on the wet floor, failure to warn of the presence of water, liquid, or grease, failure to remove the liquid, failure to ensure a safe floor, failure to barricade the area of the floor that had the liquid, failure to properly inspect the floor, failure to provide a safe workplace, failure to have a safe procedure for removing liquid, and allowing liquid to remain on the floor.


Elgin seeks damages in excess of $50,000.
