The plaintiff, who was 67 years old at the time of the accident, was injured when a floor manager—an employee of the defendants’ establishment—slipped and fell on water near the entrance. The plaintiff was present in the upper level of establishment, near the bread display, waiting for a table to become available for about 30 minutes. She was facing the glass display that allows patrons to see the employees making fresh bread. Her back was to the restaurant, and she was there with members of her family, including her son.
