Actress Tori Spelling has filed a lawsuit against the Benihana restaurant chain over an incident back in April in which she reportedly suffered severe burns in a Benihana restaurant. As we reported at the time, the incident took place on Easter Sunday, when the actress reportedly caught her heel and fell backward into a hot hibachi.
Spelling was treated at a hospital after the incident in Encino, Calif., and reportedly received a large burn on her right arm.
TMZ.com reports that Spelling is alleging she had “deep second and third degree burn injuries.”
“In the lawsuit Spelling says she racked up medical expenses, ‘general damage’ and wage loss … although there’s no mention of where she was employed,” TMZ reports. “She’s suing the Benihana corporation — not just the Encino location.”
