ST. LOUIS – A business invitee at a Florissant gas station alleges standing water in a high-traffic area caused a fall.
LB Miller filed a complaint on May 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against QuikTrip Corp. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 30, 2017, the plaintiff was at the defendant's Florissant store and was walking in the designated fueling and high-traffic area and fell due to standing water and was injured.
The plaintiff holds QuikTrip Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently allowed the walkway to remain in an unreasonably dangerous condition and failed to make it safe or warn its invitees that such danger existed.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory damages of more than $25,000, prejudgment interest, costs and all other relief that are necessary and proper. The plaintiff is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone Sumner & Lauber in St. Louis.
