Taco Bell Sued After Manager Splashed Customers With Boiling Water

A lawsuit has been filed against Taco Bell after one of its managers allegedly poured boiling water on two customers.

The lawsuit filed in Dallas Country on Wednesday claimed that Taco Bell had not properly trained its employees. It is also seeking more than $1 million in damages.

The lawsuit stated that aside from chest and stomach burns, Davis had 10 seizures due to shock before reaching Parkland Memorial Hospital. The minor suffered face, chest, arms, legs, and stomach burns.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs ordered $30-worth of food from Taco Bell on Abrams Road in Dallas on June 17 and received the wrong order. The plaintiffs returned to the drive-thru twice to have their order corrected before they parked their car and went into the dining room, where the employees allegedly locked them up.

The manager allegedly poured a bucket of boiling water on the two customers after they tried to discuss the wrong order with  other Taco Bell employees.

The lawsuit stated that when the customers got into their car, one Taco Bell employee came out “laughing, clapping, and taunting the family.” It also noted that the Taco Bell manager, carrying another bucket of hot water, came after the two customers as they left the dining area.

Taco Bell has not yet released a statement about the matter.
