Monica Conyers sues McDonald's

Former Detroit city council member Monica Conyers says she suffered a severe injury at a McDonalds inside Detroit Metro Airport earlier this year.

And now she has filed a lawsuit over the franchise owner.

Conyers' lawsuit is against the franchise owner after claiming to be injured when she grabbed a chair to push the seat she was sitting in closer to the table.

According to Conyers' attorney Amir Makled, she felt an excruciating pain caused by a cut that resulted in her losing a fingernail. 

"The chair had a metal object that was extended out of it," Makled said.

Conyers was treated at the restaurant by police and paramedics who provided gauze and alcohol pads for the injury. 

She then flew to the nation's capital to see her husband U. S. Rep. John Conyers sworn into office.

According to her attorney when Conyers was in DC, she got treated again for her injury.

The injuries suffered include "extreme pain, anguish and loss of full use of her hand."

"It was a severe cut on her ring finger which is now growing imperfectly and will continue to grow that way," Makled said.

FOX 2 tried to reach Conyers at her home but no one would come to the door.

A representative for the McDonald's franchise owner told Fox 2 "We do not comment on pending litigation."

According to the company's website, the franchise is owned by former Lions player Jim Thrower.

Conyers' attorney says he hopes the company will do the right thing.
