BELLEVILLE — A woman is suing Colormaster Automotive Paint Inc. and Kevin D. Walk, property owners, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

BELLEVILLE — A woman claims she was injured when she fell on an unmarked step at Colormaster Automotive Paint.

Bonnie Rohr filed a complaint on Dec. 6 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Colormaster Automotive Paint Inc. and Kevin D. Walk, alleging they breached their duty to exercise ordinary care and caution in maintaining their premises.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 8, 2014, she was lawfully at the defendants' premises. She was walking through the store when she allegedly fell due to an unmarked step.

As a result, Rohr alleges, she sustained injuries to her body and has expended money necessary for medical care and treatment.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, failed to warn her of the dangerous condition and failed to provide safety precautions around the unmarked step.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against each defendant in an amount exceeding $50,000, plus costs of this suit.

She is represented by Kirk A. Caponi of Williams, Caponi & Associates PC in Belleville.
