Belleville woman blames city for fall that led to injuries

By The Madison County Record | Jul 12, 2016

BELLEVILLE — A Belleville woman is suing the city, alleging negligence led to her suffering injuries. 

Jody Jordan filed a lawsuit June 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against the city of Belleville, alleging negligence in failing to fix a dangerous condition.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 6, 2015, while Jordan cutting her grass at 17th and South Belt East in Belleville, she fell because of a dangerous retaining wall built by the city. The suit says the fall resulted in Jordan sustaining serious injuries, pain, suffering and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges Belleville failed to warn her of the danger by posting a notice or a safety cone, and improperly built the retaining walls, creating a dangerous condition.

Jordan seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, along with legal costs. She is represented by attorney Andrew G. Toannies of Lashly & Baer PC in St. Louis.
