ST. LOUIS — A leasee is suing Michelle and Alfred Wallace, property owner, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
La'Donna Thompson filed a complaint on Feb. 1 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they failed to maintain the leased property in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 18, 2017 while leasing the property owned by the defendants at 5863 Minerva St., the cabinet fixture and sink in the kitchen fell on her. She sustained injuries that resulted in pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages, and medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds the Wallaces responsible because they allegedly negligently allowed the fixtures to become in an unreasonably dangerous condition and failed to adequately warn her that such danger existed on the property.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks compensatory damages of more than $25,000, plus interest, costs and any further relief that the court may deem necessary and proper. She is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone, Sumner & Lauber in St. Louis.
