ST. LOUIS – A guest at a formal event at a St. Louis convention center alleges electrical wires hidden by a rug caused her to fall.
Michelle Perry-Williams filed a complaint on July 30 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and John Doe audio video company alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 29, 2016, she went to America's Center Convention Complex for the Fashionetta Cotillion sponsored by defendant Alpha Kappa when she tripped and fell on electrical wires covered by a rug. She alleges she suffered severe, permanent and progressive injuries to her knees and right hip as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and John Doe audio video company responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to warn their invitees of the dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages between $25,000 and $75,000, plus costs, interest and all other relief that are necessary under the circumstances. She is represented by Kurt Wolfgram of Wolfgram & Associates PC in St. Louis.
