An Alton bar denies liability in a patron's trip and fall lawsuit and argues the man failed to keep a proper lookout when he allegedly fell on an unmarked step.
William Green filed the complaint on Oct. 24 against Mac’s Time-Out Lounge.
Green alleges that on July 29, he was a guest at Mac’s Time-Out Lounge. While he was attempting to exit the beer garden, he claims he fell on an unmarked step and fractured his left hip.
As a result, he claims he suffered pain and incurred medical expenses.
Green claims the defendant negligently failed to mark the elevation change of the step and failed to warn him of the dangerous condition existing on its premises.
Mac’s Time Out Lounge answered the complaint on Dec. 6 through attorney A. J. Bronsky of Brown & James in St. Louis.
The defendant denies liability and argues that the plaintiff caused his own damages by failing to keep a proper lookout.
Green seeks compensation of more than $50,000, plus court costs.
He is represented by Lanny Darr of Darr Law Offices LTD in Alton.
