Tori Spelling Gives Benihana the Third Degree, Sues for Hibachi Burns

Ya’ burnt!

Tori Spelling is suing Benihana restaurant over an incident that occurred back in April when the actress slipped and fell onto a hibachi grill, receiving “deep second and third degree burn injuries”. Though the accident occurred at a franchise location in Encino, CA, TMZ reports that Spelling is suing the entire Benihana corporation for medical expenses, “general damage” and wage loss despite specification of relevant employment.

Spelling’s doctor originally determined that a skin graft on the damaged skin was necessary, asserting that she could risk severe infection and scarring without further medical attention.
