ST. LOUIS — A Missouri resident is suing after she allegedly tripped on a floor mat inside the revolving door of a hotel.
Angela Ruffin Stacker filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Chase Park Plaza Hotel, LLC alleging that the defendant failed its duty of using ordinary care in maintaining its premises.
According to the complaint, Stacker alleges that on Feb. 8 she was entering the hotel as an invitee when she tripped on a floor mat inside of the revolving door, causing her to fall and sustain an injury to her right shoulder. As a result, Ruffin claims she suffered severe pain and incurred medical bills.
The plaintiff holds Chase Park Plaza Hotel responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to use the mat that laid flat, and did not wrinkle, buckle or raise up; failed to use flooring that was safe without a floor mat; and failed to warn of a tripping hazard.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $25,000 but less than $75,000, together with costs expended, and any further relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Thomas E. Schwartz of Holloran Schwartz & Gaertner LLP in St. Louis.
