EDWARDSVILLE — A woman is suing Long John Silvers after she allegedly slipped and fell on a puddle of liquid.
Laura J. St. Peters filed a complaint on Oct. 17 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Treasure Isles Inc. doing business as Long John Silvers, alleging it failed to maintain its restaurant in a reasonably safe condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 17, 2015, she was at the defendant's premises when she slipped and fell on a puddle of liquid on the floor.
As a result, she claims she sustained injuries to her legs, knees and other parts of her body and experienced pain and suffering and incurred medical related expenses.
St. Peters alleges Long John Silvers negligently allowed the existence of a dangerous condition on its premises and failed to place warning signs around the area where the water accumulated.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs and all further relief that the court may deem just and proper.
She is represented by Michael R. Wesley of the Law Office of Michael R. Wesley LLC in Wood River.
