Gloria Estefan Lawsuit

Your Restaurant Disfigured Me!

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

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.

The difference between Ms. Yanks and me is that everything in my claim is 100% the truth.
Had Mr. Estefan took time to speak with me about my concerns like he does the homeless in South Beach, YEARS AGO
this matter could have been resolved.
BTW...using time as a way out is a very weak defense.
I aked for oral argument on this and I was denied, why?
Another difference between Ms. Yanks and me is that she has counsel, I don't.
Through the truth and a "never give up" resiliance is why I have gotten as far as this without the benefit of an attorney, against World class, top notch attorneys and firm that represent defendants.
I'm just looking for a fair shake, justice for what happened.
TMZ are U interested in talking to me?
