By Robbie Hargett | Aug 25, 2015


A Granite City man is suing AutoZone following injuries he allegedly sustained in the store's parking lot.

Christopher R. Sturdivant filed a complaint on Aug. 3 in Madison County Circuit Court against AutoZone Parts Inc., alleging negligence.

The complaint alleges that on July 23, 2014, Sturdivant tripped on an unmarked and unpainted speed bump in the AutoZone parking lot, causing him to fall on the concrete and sustain injuries, including injuries to his leg, knee and foot, which have lead to pain and suffering, medical expenses, and disability.

According to the complaint, the defendant was negligent in its failure to warn patrons of the speed bump, which did not have proper markings.

Sturdivant seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of the suit.

He is represented by Keith Short of the Law Offices of Keith Short in Edwardsville.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-979
