ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis County man is suing a construction and demolition company, citing alleged negligence.

Larry Buckingham filed a complaint in the St. Louis Circuit Court against J.W. Fuller Construction/L. Wolf Co. LLC, alleging that the company failed to maintain a construction area in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, on April 6, 2013, the plaintiff was walking on a handicapped ramp of a VA hospital when he slipped and fell on gravel and runoffs from a nearby construction area. He claims he sustained serious and permanent injuries, including a fractured left ankle. 

The plaintiff holds J.W. Fuller Construction/L. Wolf Co. LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently allowed debris to cause the handicapped ramp to maintain in a dangerous, defective and unsafe condition.

The plaintiff seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount, cost for this action and any further relief as the court deems proper. He is represented by S. Lee Patton of Lee Patton Law in Kirkwood.

St. Louis Circuit Court case number 1722-CC10863
