An Illinois woman filed suit in St. Clair County last week against a shoe store in the mall alleging that the uneven threshold at the entrance caused her to fall and fracture her hip.
While shopping at St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights, Khristine Randolph tripped over the two-inch wooden threshold at the door, sustaining a fractured hip joint and injuries to her back and neck. She claims that because the difference in height was not noticeable and no warning signs were present, the store is liable for her injuries and medical costs.
In addition to medical costs, Randolph claims pain and mental anguish as well as an inability to pursue ordinary duties of life. She seeks a judgment of $50,000-75,000, plus costs.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of unsafe or hazardous conditions, you may have a legal claim. Slip-and-fall cases hold the property owner responsible for injuries whenever a warning sign is not present or the ground was damaged.
