Applebee's has settled a lawsuit brought by parents of a Texas boy who suffered brain injuries when an allegedly drunk restaurant patron crashed into their car.
The parents of Abdallah Khader, now 6, sought $10 million from Kansas City, Mo.-based Applebee's in a civil lawsuit, Dallas' KTVT reports. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
The Khaders' lawsuit accused workers at a Mansfield, Texas, Applebee's of serving a man 23 drinks in less than two hours, leading him to drive drunk and crash into the Khaders' car. A law firm's investigation was key to the Applebee's settlement, the family's lawyer said.
