Guest sues homeowners after being struck by door

By Noddy A. Fernandez | May 15, 2017

EDWARDSVILLE — A woman is suing two homeowners after she was allegedly struck by a door and fell to the ground while at their home.

Wando L. Robison filed a complaint on May 2 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Mitchell Manns and Kimmie L. Manns, alleging they failed to ensure that the premises were safe for use by any invitee.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April 10, 2016, she was in the utility room in the defendants' home when she was allegedly struck by a door going to the garage. She claims the door forced her against an adjoining wall before she fell to the floor. 

As a result, Robison claims she sustained serious and permanent physical injuries. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to ascertain whether anyone was on the other side of the door prior to bursting through the doors and failed to announce that the door was about to open so as to warn anyone on the other side of the door to move away.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit, and any other further relief to which the court deems proper. 

She is represented by John L. Bitzer of Bitzer Law Firm in Collinsville.
