Gloria Estefan Lawsuit

Your Restaurant Disfigured Me!

10/27/2013 10:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1022-gloria-estefan-getty
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.

She warned the restaurant about the slippery substance before she fell? Can anybody say "suspicious"?

$15,000 is coffee money to Gloria Estefan. Injuries to that degree would be like a hangnail.

The floor might be slippery but not as bad as the food at this place....it gets one star in my book for food quality.

She warned the restaurant about the slippery substance on the floor and then slipped on it and got hurt? Makes you wonder if she put it there. No case.

Slip and fall claims are the number one choice of scammers.

regardless of "fame" the woman lives to sue. i remember the last time she took some poor schmuck to court because of an auto accident
(she hit him) ruining his life with her high dollar attorneys. worst of all it was her fault! sadly whomever can buy the big guns more oft than not wins in the end and that just isn't right. send her back to the that the island of old grisled misfit celebs asap.

The woman knew the "slippery stuff" was on the floor and she still walked on it? And now she's suing? Am I missing something here or is this woman just plain stupid?
