An Iowa woman who hurt herself walking into a glass panel at Culver's is suing the restaurant for physical and emotional trauma.
Chicago resident Mary T. McCarthy claims the restaurant in Coralville was negligent by not properly marking the panel, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported.
"Essentially there should been some kind of markings on it -- a decal, a bar across -- something to indicate this was not open space," her attorney, George Appleby, told the newspaper.
McCarthy is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
According to the lawsuit, she attempted to walk through what she believed was an opening next to the exit door while eating at the restaurant in December 2011.
McCarthy claims she dislocated her jaw, broke her nose, tore a rotator cuff and suffered neck and back injuries as a result, in addition to emotional trauma.
The restaurant's general manager told the Press-Citizen he was unaware of the lawsuit and could not comment.
