Customer accuses Alton mall operators of negligence

By The Madison County Record | Jul 18, 2016

EDWARDSVILLE — A Wood River woman is suing the operators of an Alton mall, alleging their negligence caused the plaintiff to suffer injuries in a fall.

Betty Sherman filed a lawsuit July 7, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Marquette Realty Capital LLC doing business as Alton Square Mall and Hull Property Group doing business as Alton Mall LLC, alleging negligence in failing to exercise ordinary care.

According to the complaint, on July 11, 2014, Sherman visited Alton Square Mall and while attempting to sit on a chair in the food court, the chair collapsed. The suit says this caused her to fall, resulting in extensive injuries, pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to discover the danger posed by the faulty chair, negligently failed to maintain their property and failed to ensure public safety.

Sherman seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, legal costs, plus all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorneys and Ralph J. Mendelsohn and Rodney D. Caffey of The Caffey Law Firm in Godfrey.
