EDWARDSVILLE–A patron is suing a Godfrey restaurant, alleging negligence over a fall she took outside the defendant's facility.

A patron is suing a Godfrey restaurant after she allegedly fell outside the establishment. 

Susan M. Gaskill filed a lawsuit on Oct. 14 in Madison County Circuit Court against Josephine's Holdings of Godfrey. 

According to the complaint, on Feb. 27, as she was leaving the restaurant, Gaskill's shoe allegedly sank into deteriorated grout outside, causing her to trip and fall.

The suit says the defendant should have warned the plaintiff about the grout in the walkway.

As a result, the lawsuit states, Gaskill was injured and has experienced pain, permanent disability and disfigurement now and into the future. The suit alleges the plaintiff has paid and will pay medical expenses and has experienced a loss of wages.

Gaskill seeks at least $50,000, court costs and attorney fees. She is represented by attorney Brad L. Badgley of Belleville.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1331.
