A bicyclist is suing the Village of Glen Carbon claiming injuries from riding on a sidewalk.
Stanley Obrecht, Jr. filed a complaint on May 18, in the Madison County Circuit Court against The Village of Glen Carbon alleging that the local government failed to warn plaintiff of the dangerous condition of the sidewalk.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on May 26, 2015, he suffered injuries while riding his bicycle when its front tire collided with an uneven pavement on the sidewalk. The plaintiff holds the village responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to put a warning sign for the uneven pavement on the sidewalk that could cause an accident.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, all damages, $50,000 plus court cost and any further relief this court sees fit. He is represented by Todd W. Sivia of Sivia Business & Legal Services, P.C. in Edwardsville and Reiad M. Khouri of Khouri Law Firm, LLC in St. Louis.
