The manager of Taco Bell poured hot water on two customers who complained that the restaurant had misplaced their order, sending them to the hospital with serious burns, according to a recently filed lawsuit.
In the million-dollar lawsuit, plaintiffs Brittany Davis and her niece, a minor identified only by the name CTThey claimed to have parked a car at Taco Bell in Dallas and placed an order for $31, but they didn’t get what they wanted.
So they circled the car two more times to correct the situation, but the employee had nothing.
Then the couple allegedly stopped their car and tried to walk inside the fast food joint, but it was already closed. An employee opened the door and let them in.
After the two asked to have their order rectified, one of the workers allegedly challenged CT into a fight before the manager appeared, carrying a bucket of hot water.
Then, the director poured boiling water over CT’s face, causing the plaintiffs’ chests to spatter, according to the suit filed on July 13 by the prominent civil rights attorney. Ben Crump.
Fortunately, the two managed to escape before being attacked again by Taco Bell’s staff, who laughed and clapped as they walked away, the lawsuit alleges.
Davis says she has suffered deep burns to her chest and abdomen as well as traumatic brain injuries, which have caused at least 10 seizures. CT says she has experienced discoloration and scarring on her face, chest, legs, arms, and stomach.
The Dallas Police Department is investigating the June 17 incident.
Crump tells TMZ… “Not only did Brittany and CT suffer the physical trauma of the burns, but they will now live with the psychological trauma that comes with an attack like this. Companies have a duty to hire quality, stable, and safe staff as a top priority.”
