ST. LOUIS – A pedestrian alleges she injured various parts of her body because the condition of a St. Louis sidewalk caused her to fall.
Louise Lee filed a complaint on May 10 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 3, 2014, she was injured while walking along Maryland Avenue in St. Louis when she tripped on a raised portion of the concrete. She alleges she suffered injuries to her knees, wrist, left shoulder and back as a result.
The plaintiff holds the city of St. Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain the sidewalk free from any defects, failed to fix the defective portion of the sidewalk and failed to warn the public of the known danger.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in a fair and reasonable amount, costs of court and all other relief that are proper and just. She is represented by Matthew J. Sauter of Sauter Sullivan LLC in St. Louis.
