Tori Spelling is suing Japanese restaurant chain Benihana after the actress reportedly sustained second- and third-degree burns at an Encino, California, location back in April.

Spelling, the daughter of legendary film and television producer Aaron Spelling, filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, E! Online reported. The reality show star is seeking lost wages and medical and hospital expenses, and is also claiming that her earning capacity has been affected since the accident.

According to E! Online, Spelling tripped and fell on the restaurant's sizzling hot hibachi grill while attending an Easter Sunday dinner with husband and fellow actor Dean McDermott and their four children and friends.

"Tori hadn't even started to eat, when she slipped and fell," a source told People magazine of the April incident. "Not thinking, she grabbed onto the side of the hot grill and burned her arm. At the time, it didn't seem as bad as the doctors told her it was the next day."

Spelling underwent skin grafts at a hospital after the incident.

"In the lawsuit, Spelling says she racked up medical expenses, 'general damage' and wage loss . . . although there's no mention of where she was employed," TMZ reported. "She's suing the Benihana corporation — not just the Encino location."

Spelling's lawsuit accuses the restaurant of negligence and demands unspecified damages.

The lawsuit is just the latest drama to surround the actress, who has had part of her life play out in front of reality show cameras on Lifetime's "True Tori," including a cheating scandal involving her husband.
