EDWARDSVILLE – A guest at a Granite City residence has filed suit against the homeowner after she tripped and fell on a raised ledge.
Debra J. Singleton filed a complaint on Nov. 16 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Phyllis Shaver, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 26, 2016, she was a guest at Shaver's Granite City property when she allegedly tripped and fell on a raised ledge between the kitchen and living room.
