Gloria Estefan's Miami restaurant was a dangerous accident just waiting to happen ... so says a woman who's suing "Bongos Cuban Cafe" claiming she was disfigured at the eatery ... TMZ has learned.
The woman's claims are serious -- bodily injury, pain, physical handicap, disfigurement, mental pain and suffering, loss of income, and loss of the capacity to enjoy life.
Sounds like a horrifying accident, right? According to the lawsuit, the woman, Gerri Ann Yanks was hurt "after slipping and falling on a slippery substance."
Yanks says the restaurant should have known about the slippery stuff ... especially since she warned the staff about it before she fell.
Her exact injuries aren't specified in the lawsuit -- so we don't know what part of her was actually (allegedly) disfigured -- but she's suing the restaurant and Estefan Enterprises, Inc. for more than $15,000.
We reached out -- carefully -- to Estefan ... but her reps had no comment.
