ST. LOUIS — A woman is suing a restaurant for alleged negligence in keeping premises free from any dangerous condition to avoid harming customers.
Masen O. Minor filed a complaint June 26 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Consips LLC alleging that the defendant failed its duty to exercise ordinary care to maintain all hallways, dance floors, seating areas, common grounds, walkways and entrances in and around the premises in a reasonably safe condition for the use of permitted and intended users of the property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 31, 2015, she slipped on a puddle of liquid in a hallway area. She claims she attempted to brace her fall, causing her hand to become caught in the metal wall around the bar area. As a result, Minor claims she suffered from severe pain, had to attend physical therapy and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Consips responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to take reasonable steps to correct the dangerous condition in the premises and failed to warn or otherwise notify patrons.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $25,000 to compensate for her injuries, costs incurred, and for such other relief as is just and reasonable. She is represented by Jamie L. Boock and John P. Guletz of Rossiter & Boock LLC in St. Louis.
