EDWARDSVILLE – A disabled woman alleges she was injured while attending a workshop in Alton because of an obstacle in a walking area.
Anita Ballinger, by and through her next friend Kathryn Randall, filed a complaint on Feb. 9 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Challenge Unlimited Inc., alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 16, 2016, she was an attendee at a workshop located at the defendant's facility when she tripped and fell over an obstacle that was left in the walking area in a classroom.
