A woman is suing a veterans organization alleging she was injured on its property following her trip and fall.
Lorraine Beaston filed a complaint on Dec. 17 in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County against Catholic War Veterans Butz-Jobe Post #370, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Beaston was dining at the restaurant on March 13. While exiting, she claims she was unaware of a change in elevation that was not properly marked.
As a result, she claims she fell and severely injured her right shoulder, ribs and left leg.
Beaston is seeking compensation of more than $50,000 in order to cover legal fees, medical expenses and other fees. She is represented by Jeffrey A. Kopis of the Kopis Law Office in Belleville.
