EDWARDSVILLE — A husband and wife are suing Edward T. Pinnell Jr. and Marcy B. Pinnell, residence owners, alleging negligence in connection with a slip and fall.

EDWARDSVILLE — A woman claims she was injured when she slipped and fell on ice while exiting the defendants' home.

Deborah Devors and Fred W. Devors filed a complaint on Feb. 2 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Edward and Marcy Pinnell, alleging they breached their duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 6, 2015, Deborah Devors slipped and fell on ice as she was exiting the defendants' residence.

As a result, she claims she suffered great pain, medical expenses and loss of consortium.

The plaintiffs allege the Pinnells failed to take reasonable steps to inspect and repair the garage gutters and failed to warn Deborah Devors of the unsafe and dangerous icy condition.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendants in an amount exceeding $50,000, plus costs of this suit.

They are represented by J. Robert Edmonds of Edmonds Law Office PC in Edwardsville.
