ST. LOUIS – A Kentucky woman alleges that she was injured at a St. Louis museum because of inadequate lighting in a stairway.

Susan Dewald filed a complaint on Aug. 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against City Museum I LLC alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 4, she was a lawful invitee at defendant's art and sculpture museum and was injured when she fell while descending the castle stairway. She alleges she suffered significant injuries to her foot, ankle and head as a result of the fall.

The plaintiff holds City Museum I LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to install proper handrails in the stairway, failed to provide adequate lighting and failed to give warning of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in a fair and reasonable amount of more than $25,000, plus costs, interest and all other relief that are proper and just. She is represented by W. Wylie Blair of OnderLaw LLC in St. Louis.
