BELLEVILLE – A Waterloo woman is suing after she allegedly slipped and fell on an icy parking lot.

LaDonna Harrison filed the suit Feb. 10 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against 8 Oakwood Investments and several other named defendants.

On Feb. 14, 2014, the plaintiff claims she was on the defendants' premises as an invitee. On that day, the parking lot at 400 and 402 W. Main St. in Belleville was allegedly covered in an unnatural accumulation of ice and snow.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants had a duty to keep the parking lot clear of hazards. She alleges they were negligent in allowing a dangerous condition to exist on its premises, failing to maintain the parking lot in a reasonably safe condition, failing to fix the dangerous condition, and failing to erect a barricade to guard against plaintiff's contact with the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff's slip and fall caused injuries to numerous parts of her body, she will continue to spend money for medical expenses, and she has lost and will in the future lose wages from gainful employment.

The plaintiff seeks an amount in excess of $50,000, plus court costs and other relief the court deems just. She is represented by Micah S. Summers of Walton Telken Foster LLC in Edwardsville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 16-L-80
