Personal Injury Case Includes Local Applebee’s Restaurant

Following a tragic incident that left a six-year-old boy with severe brain damage, publicity is building over the inclusion of the Mansfield, Texas Applebee’s restaurant as part of the personal injury lawsuit. Six-year-old Abdallah Khader’s car was struck by a vehicle operated by Stewart Lee Richardson. Richardson was found to be intoxicated, and had been served over 20 drinks at the local Applebee’s restaurant prior to getting behind the wheel. 

All four members of the family were seriously injured during the crash, with Abdallah, who was two years old at the time of the incident, sustaining the most severe injuries. The family’s lawyer also intends to file suit against Mr. Richardson, who is currently awaiting trial on charges related to the incident. The Applebee’s restaurant was included in the personal injury lawsuit by claiming the restaurant failed to prevent such an accident, and shirked its responsibility to limit the number of alcoholic drinks served to a single customer during a single visit. The family is seeking compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income, emotional trauma, mental anguish, and the added financial strain of caring for a child with a severe brain injury for the rest of his natural life.
