A Belleville man has filed suit against a hotel where he claims he was injured due to an unspecified dangerous condition.

David Marshall claims he was lodging at the Belleville Executive Inn located at 1234 Centreville Ave. in Belleville on July 17, 2010, when he sustained serious personal injuries.

Marshall blames his injury on a dangerous condition at the hotel, but does not specify what the condition was.

In his complaint, Marshall alleges he was hindered and prevented from attending to his usual duties, lost wages, suffered great pain and anguish and incurred medical costs because of the incident.

Belleville Executive Inn negligently allowed a dangerous condition to exist, failed to warn of the dangerous condition and failed to repair the dangerous condition, according to the complaint filed June 24 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

In addition to Belleville Executive Inn, Marshall names Earl Penny as a defendant, saying Penny invited Marshall to stay at the hotel as a business invitee.

In his two-count complaint, Marshall is seeking a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.

He will be represented by Mark C. Scoggins and Anthony P. Gilbreth of Crowder and Scoggins in Columbia.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-328.
