By The Madison County Record | Jul 29, 2016

EDWARDSVILLE – A man has filed suit against a tenant and property owners alleging he was injured because of their negligence.

James Rushing filed a complaint on July 22 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Gery Lee Forbes, Alice Goulie, David McEuen and Tracy McEuen alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 21, he was lawfully on the premises at 125 Cooper in East Alton for a social visit with defendant Forbes, who leased said premises with defendants McEuens. On that day, the suit states the plaintiff tripped and fell on a pile of fencing material, causing him to injure his shoulder that resulted in pain, disability and medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Forbes, Goulie, David McEuen and Tracy McEuen responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide adequate illumination in the area, failed to warn him of the fencing debris near the wood pile and failed to provide safe ingress and egress.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants in an amount of more than $50,000, plus costs of this suit. He is represented by Lanny Darr of Darr Law Office LTD in Alton.
