By The Madison County Record | Jan 6, 2017


BELLEVILLE — A hair stylist is suing after she allegedly slipped on snow or ice and injured herself.

Estella Frierson filed a complaint on Dec. 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against S&L Concessions LLC, doing business as Mission Essential Barber, and Lonnie Brock, alleging the employers failed to provide a safe place to work.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 1, 2014, while walking on the defendants' walkway, she slipped and fell due to an accumulation of snow, causing her to sustain serious, permanent and disabling injuries.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to exercise due care to properly remove snow and/or ice from the parking lot and/or walkways and failed to provide workers' compensation insurance to cover her injuries.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for a reasonable amount in excess of $25,000, plus interest and costs expended for this action.

She is represented by Paul T. Slocomb of Hoffman Slocomb LLC in St. Louis.
