BELLEVILLE — A St. Clair County woman is suing a Walgreens store in Belleville, alleging its negligence caused her to fall and suffer injuries.
Eileen Henderson filed a lawsuit June 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Bond Drug Company of Illinois LLC, doing business as Walgreens No. 4024, William L. Frein and Mildred A. Frein, alleging their negligence permitted the facility to become and remain in a dangerous condition.
According to the complaint, on July 29, 2014, Henderson was shopping inside the defendants' facility in Belleville when she was distracted by merchandise in an aisle. The suit says she encountered debris on the floor, which caused her to to fall and suffer injuries of personal and pecuniary nature.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants improperly managed and maintained the premises, failed to properly monitor the floor to ensure that dangerous conditions did not exist and failed to warn Henderson of such dangerous conditions.
Henderson seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus legal costs. She is represented by attorney Jeffrey A. Kopis of Kopis Law Office in Belleville.
