By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Oct 11, 2016


EDWARDSVILLE — A woman claims she was injured after tripping while helping a tenant move in to rental property.

Linda Bruns filed a complaint on Sept. 27 in Madison County Circuit Court against Clay Marquis, alleging that the rental property owner failed to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 28, 2014, she was helping a tenant move at the defendant's property and was walking on the concrete walkway when her foot encountered a concealed deviation, causing her to lose her balance and fall.

As a result, she claims she sustained injuries that caused her to suffer physical pain, mental anguish and medical expenses.

The plaintiff alleges Marquis permitted and allowed a dangerous condition to exist and failed to properly warn individuals lawfully upon the premises of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount exceeding $50,000, plus costs of this action. She is represented by Maria A. Gust of The Law Offices of Frederick W. Nesler & Associates Ltd. in Springfield.
