By Michael Abella | Aug 26, 2016


BELLEVILLE — An East Carondolet woman is suing Bond Drug and Walgreen, alleging their negligence cause her to fall at a store and suffer injuries.

Jennifer Goss filed a lawsuit Aug. 5 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Bond Drug Company of Illinois LLC, Cole WG Cahoka IL LLC and Walgreen Co., alleging negligence in failing to keep their store in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 20, 2014, Goss stopped at a Walgreens in Cahokia to purchase household items. While walking through the store, Goss claims she slipped and fell.

The fall, the lawsuit states, caused Goss to sustain injuries, resulting in physical pain, mental anguish, plus medical care expenses.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants allowed the wet and slippery condition to exist on their property, failed to warn her of the slippery condition and failed to clean up or otherwise make safe a wet and slippery condition.

Goss seeks trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit, and all relief the court deems just and equitable. She is represented by attorney Mark C. Scoggins of Crowder & Scoggins Ltd. in Columbia.
