A Chicago man who claims he suffered injuries at a St. Louis Dierberg's store is bringing his personal injury suit to Madison County.

Jeremy David claims he was shopping at defendant Dierberg's Markets, located at 11481 Olive Blvd. in St. Louis, on June 6, 2011, when he slipped and fell on a clear puddle of liquid on the floor.

Due to his fall, David sustained permanent injuries, according to the complaint originally filed in Cook County Circuit Court last August.

The case was opened in Madison County on June 20.

David blames his fall on Dierberg's, saying the store negligently failed to properly maintain their flooring, allowed clear liquid to remain in an area frequented by customers, failed to warn of the pooled liquid even though it knew about the slippery area and failed to have slip-proof flooring near its check-out counters.

In his complaint, David is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus other relief the court deems just.

David C. Boyd of the Law Offices of David Boyd in Chicago will be representing him.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-866.
