David Haggett filed a personal injury suit against Alton Memorial Hospital in Madison County Circuit Court July 7, seeking damages in excess of $50,000 for injuries he received after falling on a slippery floor.

According to the suit, Haggett was assisting a friend into the emergency room on Aug. 25, 2004, when he fell on a slippery substance the janitorial staff allowed to remain on the floor.

Haggett claims the fall caused severe, permanent and progressive injuries to his lower back that caused a disability, loss of a normal life, pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost wages.

Haggett is represented by Aaron Lefton of St. Louis.
