ST. LOUIS — A patron is suing The Sheldon Arts Foundation, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

Virginia L. McDonnell filed a complaint on Feb. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court  alleging that foundation failed to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 4, 2017, she was lawfully upon defendant's premises, known as The Sheldon, when she suffered a fall and was injured. She allegedly suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone that might cause her disability in the future. 

The plaintiff holds The Sheldon Arts Foundation responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently allowed the existence of a dangerous condition by failing to provide adequate handrails and other means of securing its patrons' safety, and by failing to provide sufficient lighting.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages of not less than $25,000, plus costs of this action. She is represented by Mark F. Haywood of Mark F. Haywood LLC in St. Louis.

St. Louis Circuit Court case number 1822-CC00419
