A Collinsville man claims the "carelessness" of owners and managers of a local hotel led him to slip and fall in the lobby.

Bobby Cattani filed a lawsuit July 10 in Madison County Circuit Court against Lodging Hospitality Management, doing business as Doubletree Hotel. Hotel owner, Colhot LLC, is also named as a defendant.

Just after 11 p.m. on Aug. 2, 2010, Cattani says he slipped and fell on a "liquid substance that had accumulated on the floor" of the Doubletree Hotel on Eastport Plaza Drive. He says he severely and permanently injured numerous parts of his body along with his nervous system.

Cattani accuses Lodging Hospitality Management and Colholt LLC of negligence for allegedly failing to keep the hotel lobby floor clean and dry. He says he has suffered -- and will continue to suffer -- physical and mental pain and anguish. Cattani is asking for an undetermined amount of money for medical expenses and lost income in addition to court costs.

Attorney Jeanne AuBuchon of Belleville represents Cattani.
