BELLEVILLE — A woman claims she was injured at a gas station convenience store when she tripped on a cardboard material while trying to pay for her gas.
Mae Shobe filed a complaint on April 6 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Midwest Petroleum Company, Midwest Petroleum and Convenience, Phillips Gas Company, doing business as Phillips 66, and Zephyr Xpress, alleging they violated the Illinois Premises Liability Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 10, 2015, she was an invitee on the defendants' premises with the intention of paying for her gas and buying items inside the convenience store when she was injured due to a cardboard material on the floor.
As a result, Shobe claims she suffered physical injuries, pain and medical bills.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to inspect the premises, failed to warn of the dangerous condition and failed to repair and/or remedy the dangerous condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for an equitable sum in excess of $50,000 together with costs, and other further relief the Court deems appropriate.
She is represented by Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Williamson, Webster, Falb and Glisson in Alton.
