A woman claims she suffered severe injuries after she slipped and fell on a wet floor at a restaurant.

Janet L. Althoff filed a lawsuit Nov. 26 in Madison County Circuit Court against Ali Veseli doing business as Round Table Family Restaurant.

Althoff claims she was visiting Round Table at about 2:30 p.m. on March 9 when she walked from a dining room to a unisex restroom. As she was walking to the restroom, Althoff slipped on a wet and slick floor, according to the complaint.

Because of her fall, Althoff suffered severe pain and discomfort, incurred medical costs and endured damages of more than $50,000, the suit states.

Althoff blames Veseli for causing her injuries, saying the restaurant negligently failed to correct the unsafe condition and failed to warn of the wet floor.

In her complaint, Althoff seeks an unspecified judgment, plus other relief the court deems just.

Laef N. Lorton of Wittman and Lorton in Jerseyville will be representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-1917.
