A jury trial has been demanded in a case filed by a woman claiming she sustained injuries after attempting to ride a sled down a sewer pipe at a Collinsville home.
The defendants also have asked for more time to respond to the suit.
According to the lawsuit filed on July 30, Deborah Creamer claims she was invited to join a party at defendant Brian C. Hayes’ home in Collinsville where she attempted to ride a sled down a homemade slide Hayes constructed from corrugated sewer pipe. She alleges she struck her legs and feet on the slide during the process, the suit states.
Hayes Contracting is also named a defendant in the case.
Creamer blames the defendants for failing to warn her of possible harm, for failing to protect her from harm, for failing to stop her from injuring herself and for failing to provide safety equipment to her.
She is seeking a judgment of more than $100,000.
Morgan Scroggins of Scroggins Law Office in Granite City is representing Creamer.
Steve Mudge of Reed, Armstrong, Mudge & Morrissey PC in Edwardsville is representing Hayes and Hayes Contracting.
