ST. LOUIS – A pedestrian is seeking more than $25,000 from the city of St. Louis over allegations her foot was punctured by a downed pole.
Tiaundra Pittman filed a complaint on May 8 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 26, 2017, she was walking on the eastern side of Annie Malone Drive when her foot got stuck on a downed light pole, puncturing her right foot.
The plaintiff holds the city of St. Louis responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide warning or precaution of the dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount greater than $25,000 plus costs incurred for this action and any further relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Teneil Kellerman of Growe Eisen Karlen Eilerts in Clayton.
