ST. LOUIS – A woman alleges she was caused to trip because of missing seats at a St. Louis airport.
Dawn Ellen Workinger filed a complaint on Nov. 29 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 18, 2016, the plaintiff was a business invitee at defendant's St. Louis Lambert International Airport when she fell and struck her head because of a trip hazard. She alleges she sustained serious injuries to her face, head, neck, back and left shoulder as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds city of St. Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly created a hidden trip hazard when it allowed seating areas to remain with missing seats from a metal bar and failed to warn of the condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief that is proper and just. She is represented by John S. Wallach and Bruce J. Weingart of The Law Office of John S. Wallach PC in St. Louis.
