A woman claims she sustained injuries to her right arm after she fell over an uneven surface on a Granite City skating rink.

Kaitlynne Hinnen filed a lawsuit Aug. 2 in Madison County Circuit Court against Vernon Dulaney and Debra Dulaney doing business as Fun Town USA.

In her complaint, Hinnen alleges she was skating on the rink at Fun Town on March 3 at about 9 p.m. when she encountered a defect on the rink, causing her to fall.

Because of her stumble, Hinnen suffered pain and incurred medical costs, according to the complaint.

She blames the defendants for causing her fall, saying they negligently failed to maintain the surface of the rink in a safe condition, allowed an uneven surface on the rink, failed to warn skaters of the uneven surface and allowed roller skating to occur on a surface that it was not intended for.

In her complaint, Hinnen is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs.

Samuel A. Mormino Jr. of Mormino, Velloff, Edmonds and Snider in Alton will be representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-1187.
