ST. LOUIS – A pedestrian alleges she was injured at the former Baden School property because items in the grass caused her to fall.
Seanetta Ross-Mayo filed a complaint on June 4 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against The Board of Education of the City of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 4, 2016, she was injured while walking across defendant's property on Veronica Avenue when she slipped and fell on objects located on the grass. She alleges she sustained a fracture to her right arm and hand and incurred medical bills of at least $3,660 as a result of the fall.
