Marguerite Dorlus filed a complaint on April 24 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Aldi's Inc. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was lawfully shopping at the defendant's grocery store on October 13, 2015, when she slipped and fell because of liquid on the floor. She alleges she sustained serious and permanent injuries to her left shoulder, upper arm and back as a result of the fall. The suit states she incurred medical expenses in excess of $13,700.
