ST. LOUIS – A pedestrian alleges a defect in the concrete of a St. Louis street caused her to fall.
Rosie Wiederhold filed a complaint on Jan. 3 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 5, 2017, she was walking toward Globe Drug in the middle of Geyer Street in St. Louis City when she tripped on a large defect in the concrete, causing her to fall to the ground. She alleges she suffered serious injuries to her neck, face, teeth and knees as a result of the fall.
The plaintiff holds City of St. Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly had knowledge of the condition and failed to use ordinary care to keep it safe.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor for a sum of more than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief deemed appropriate. She is represented by Steven L. Groves and Stephanie A. Black of Groves | Powers LLC in St. Louis.
