A mother and her daughter are filing a lawsuit against a Frayser Burger King, as well as Burger King Corp., after fighting with the staff in September of 2012. Diane Dunlap and her then 17-year-old daughter were at the Burger King ordering ice cream when the employee making the cone sneezed into her hands and continued to make the cone. The mother asked for another cone, which caused a fight.

Burger King surveillance cameras captured the fight. The video shows Diane and her daughter packing up their stuff to leave when an employee quickly approaches them, subsequently starting a fight. At one point, one of the employees grabbed a metal sign from one of the tables to use as a weapon. The mother and daughter tried contacting Burger King Corp. after the incident, with little success. They have filed a $3 million lawsuit.

Fistfights can result in serious head injuries, such as unconsciousness or concussions. If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury, please contact our Nashville car accident attorney today at (615) 866-3938. You may be entitled to compensation.
