A Granite City woman is suing the owner of the trailer she is renting after allegedly falling through a hole in the floor.
Pamela Gibson filed the suit on Jan. 4 in Madison County Circuit Court against Mohammad Jalali, individually, and Edwards Mobile Home Park and Edwards Associates LLC, collectively.
The plaintiff rents a trailer at Edwards Mobile Home Park from Jalali, who owns and operates the park. In November 2013, the plaintiff allegedly notified Jalali that there was a hole in the floor of her trailer, but the suit claims the defendants took no action to fix the hole. On Jan. 5, 2014, Gibson allegedly fell into the hole and broke both her ankles.
The suit alleges the defendants were negligent, because they failed to repair the hole after being notified about it. Gibson alleges her injuries resulted in pain and suffering, disability, and expenses for medical care and rehabilitation.
She seeks $50,000 from both Jalali and Edwards Associates LLC, court costs and any other relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Deborah A. Hawkins of Hawkins Law Office PC in Edwardsville.
