Here at Sick of Lawsuits, we’re well-acquainted with abuses of our civil justice system. We’ve seen all sorts of outrageous lawsuits filed by folks looking to play the lawsuit lottery for a quick buck. So it really says something that even WE were surprised at the ridiculousness of a recent slip and fall lawsuit filed in Texas.
In 2012, Danny Stilley was in a restaurant and tripped and fell while heading to an elevated seating section, injuring himself. His lawsuit now claims that the restaurant’s “busy carpet pattern” prevented him from detecting the change in floor elevation, as the pattern obscured the change.
