Tori Spelling Sues Benihana After Being Burned By Hibachi Grill in April
The lawsuit states that Tori Spelling "sustained deep second and third degree burn injuries requiring hospitalization and surgery"
Tori Spelling is taking legal action against Benihana after sustaining a burn at the popular hibachi restaurant.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 alumna filed a personal injury lawsuit against the chain Wednesday, claiming she suffered wage loss, hospital and medicine expenses, general damage and loss of earning capacity after falling on a grill last Easter, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.
The lawsuit states that Spelling, 42, “sustained deep second and third degree burn injuries requiring hospitalization and surgery.” She’s seeking unspecified damages.
“Tori hadn’t even started to eat, when she slipped and fell,” a source told PEOPLE in April. “Not thinking, she grabbed onto the side of the hot grill and burned her arm. At the time, it didn’t seem as bad as the doctors told her it was the next day.”
The actress was dining with husband Dean McDermott, their four kids and extended family.
“She’s recovering, doing pretty good at home resting,” McDermott, 48, told Extra after the accident.
