A Madison County woman is suing a shopping center for injuries she claims she suffered when she fell on uneven steps.

Plaintiff Delores Parente filed suit on Sept. 10 in Madison County Circuit Court against defendants The Glen Carbon Development LLC, TKG Management Inc. (dba as The Kroenke Group) and Cato Corp.

According to the lawsuit, Parente was on the premises of the Cottonwood Plaza shopping center on Sept. 13, 2013, when she allegedly fell on concrete steps with risers of different heights.

The plaintiff claims the defendant was negligent in both providing such steps for public use and not providing a handrail. The plaintiff also alleges there was no warning about the variance in the steps’ riser heights. Parente is suing for current and future medical expenses resulting from her fall, the suit states.

Attorney William S. Beatty of the Madison County law firm of Beatty & Motil is representing Parente, who is seeking reimbursement in an amount between $50,000 and $75,000.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1163.
