ST. LOUIS – A visitor to a St. Louis courthouse alleges her finger was caught in a conveyor belt because it was in a defective condition.
Monique D. Abby filed a complaint on June 13 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 23, 2017, she was a visitor at the defendant's Carnahan Courthouse and was going through a security checkpoint when her finger got caught and entrapped by the roller and belt of defendant's conveyor belt machine. She alleges she suffered injuries to her left second finger, left upper extremity and neck that required medical care and treatment.
The plaintiff holds the city of St. Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate safety guard between the roller and belt of the conveyor machine.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant of more than $50,000, plus costs and all other relief that is fair and reasonable. She is represented by Antoinette T. Schlapprizzi of Donald L. Schlapprizzi PC in St. Louis.
