Eric Haas has filed a personal injury complaint against Galloway Properties, Inc. and Eric Galloway individually, claiming he fell into a non-partitioned, unlit recessed stairwell at 142 4th Street in East St. Louis on March 11.
According to the complaint filed Nov. 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, the defendants carelessly and negligently permitted the sidewalk at the entrance of the premises to become and remain in a dangerous condition.
Represented by Thomas C. Rich and Jennifer L. Barbieri of Fairview Heights, Haas is seeking in excess of $100,000 in damages for neck, shoulder and low back injuries.
Haas claims he suffered a disability as a result of his injuries. He also claims medical expenses and lost wages.
