Dill claims the restaurant failed to maintain its premises, failed to inspect the premises and failed to warn of a dangerous condition when the incident occurred on Dec. 1, 2004.

Represented by Edward J. Szewczyk of Callis, Papa, Hale, Szewczyk & Danzinger of Granite City, Dill is seeking in excess of $100,000 in damages.
