ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis woman is suing dog owners, citing alleged negligence.
Denise Williams filed a complaint Aug. 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Clarence Walker and Granada Walker, alleging they violated the St. Louis City Ordinance No. 66384, Section 10.04.220.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 21, 2016, she was walking in an alley in St. Louis when she was attacked by the defendants' dog. She claims she suffered serious injuries to her leg, along with substantial pain and disfigurement, which are permanent and progressive. The plaintiff holds Clarence Walker and Granada Walker responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently failed to adequately prevent their dog from attacking the plaintiff, failed to keep their dog on a leash in a public space and failed to keep the dog on their property.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages in excess of $25,000, plus costs expended for this action. She is represented by James C. Brandenburg of Brandenburg Law Offices in Clayton.
