A northern New Mexico woman is suing a Santa Fe McDonald's franchise after she said a toilet paper dispenser fell off a bathroom stall door and slammed into her face.

The lawsuit filed last week in Santa Fe District Court alleges that the 2013 public bathroom mayhem left Veronica Espinoza with a damaged retina.

According to the lawsuit, Espinoza reached for toilet paper in the "usual, common manner" when it "came crashing down" on her face, causing damage to her nose, face and eye. The lawsuit says the dispenser was attached to a bathroom stall door.

Espinoza is seeking an unspecified amount in damages and medical bill.

McZ Inc., which owns the McDonald's, did not immediately return a phone call.
