ST. LOUIS – A woman alleges she was injured while walking in a university's dormitory because of a wet carpet.
Ami Baylark filed a complaint on July 18 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Harris-Stowe State University alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 17, 2016, she was walking at defendant's dormitory when she slipped and fell while walking from wet carpeting to hardwood flooring. She alleges she suffered serious and permanent injuries to her left ankle and was caused to incur medical expenses and lost wages.
The plaintiff holds Harris-Stowe State University responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to place warning signs around the wet, steam-cleaned carpet and failed to use ordinary care.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in a fair and reasonable amount of more than $25,000 and all other relief that is proper and just. She is represented by Michelle E. Radice of Michelle E. Radice LLC in St. Louis.
