ST. LOUIS — A man is suing Home Depot USA Inc., alleging that he was injured by falling hardware while in a store.
Mujtaba Sultan filed a complaint on June 12 in St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Home Depot alleging that the home improvement chain breached its duty to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on Aug. 28, 2016, he was a lawful invitee at the Home Depot store at 3202 S. Kingshighway Blvd. when he was injured by falling boards. Plaintiff sustained injuries to his ankle and back, resulting in pain and suffering, diminished enjoyment of life, lost wages and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Home Depot responsible because the store allegedly failed to barricade the dangerous area and/or failed to warn invitees of the existence of the dangerous situation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages in excess of $25,000, costs of this suit and all other relief as the court deems necessary and proper. He is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone Sumner & Lauber in St. Louis.
