The Collinsville VFW is being sued after a woman allegedly tripped and fell in a hole in the post's parking lot.
Denise M. Lewis filed a lawsuit April 22 in Madison County Circuit Court against Collinsville VFW Post 5691.
Lewis says she was visiting the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in the 1200 block of Vandalia Street in November 2011. As she crossed the parking lot Lewis claims she tripped and fell in a hole in the surface that was allegedly unmarked.
Lewis accuses the Collinsville VFW of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses, loss of income and court fees.
She is represented by attorney Gregory Tobin of East Alton.
