A man is suing over injuries he allegedly suffered after falling on ice behind a Best Buy store.

Richard Fancher filed the suit on Dec. 7 in Madison County Circuit Court against Best Buy No. 1426 and Capitol Realty Group.

On Nov. 27, 2014, the plaintiff says he slipped on ice and fell while walking behind the Best Buy at 6670 Edwardsville Crossing in Glen Carbon, which is in a building owned by Capitol Realty Group, according to the complaint.

The suit alleges Best Buy and Capitol Realty Group were negligent in failing to keep the property clean, free of ice and snow, and in a passable manner; failing to adequately warn of a condition likely to cause a fall or injury; failing to keep proper lookout for such conditions; and failing to give notice of said dangerous conditions.

Fancher alleges he hurt his back in the incident. 

He is seeking at least $50,000, but no more than $75,000, from each defendant, plus court costs and attorney fees. He is represented by Allan L. Napp of Shrempf, Kelly & Napp Ltd. of Alton.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1582
