A man has filed suit against the Casino Queen, alleging he fell in a walkway in a hotel bathroom.

Derrick Williams claims he was a customer at Casino Queen on Sept. 19, 2008, when he slipped and fell on a negligently maintained walkway in a hotel bathroom.

Because of his fall, Williams sustained injuries to his back, left side, neck, ribs, head, trunk, spinal column, vertebrae and intervertebral discs and has experienced headaches, according to the complaint filed Sept. 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

In addition, Williams suffered damages to his nervous system, which has been shocked and deranged. He also claims he experienced pain, mental anguish and an impaired ability to enjoy work and incurred medical costs of about $9,430.50, the suit states.

He blames Casino Queen for failing to keep the premises safe, for failing to replace unsafe water pipes, for failing to warn him of the dangerous condition and for failing to rope off the area.

Williams is seeking a judgment of more than $25,000, plus costs.

Lynn A. Fischer of The Fischer Law Firm in Clayton will be representing him.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 09-L-491.
