Terri Moore filed a personal injury suit against Penn National Gaming in Madison County Circuit Court March 28, alleging she sustained serious injuries after tripping in the Captain's Table Buffet in the Alton Argosy Casino.

Moore claims she was walking in the dining area on April 6, 2006, when she slipped and fell with great force and violence causing injuries to her back, left wrist and neck.

She claims that Penn was negligent by:

  • Failing to properly maintain the walkway for customers;

  • Failing to routinely inspect the walkways for the safety of its customers;

  • Failing to have routine and proper inspections of the walkways;

  • Allowing a slippery and foreign substance to remain in the walkway; and

  • Failing to warn customers of the dangerous condition on the walkway.

    Moore claims her injuries have caused and will continue to cause her to sustain great physical pain and mental anguish, medical expenses, disfigurement and loss of a normal life.

    Represented by Mike Glisson of Alton, Moore is seeking damages less than $50,000, plus costs.

    The case is scheduled for mandatory arbitration.
