ST. LOUIS – A pedestrian alleges the city of St. Louis failed to warn of a hole of a grassy area that caused her to fall and injure her knee.
Cassandra DeClue filed a complaint on Jan. 18 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of St. Louis alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 18, 2016, she was walking on a grassy area between the sidewalk and street at 3765 Potomac St. in St. Louis when she fell into a hole. She alleges the fall caused her to sustain severe injuries to her left knee, tibial plateau and ligaments.
The plaintiff holds the city of St. Louis responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to barricade the area in which the hole existed or to provide sufficient warning of the dangerous condition.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief deemed just and proper. She is represented by Anna Lammert of Page Law in St. Louis.
