EDWARDSVILLE — A customer is suing Kabir Inc., Phillips 66 Co. and Sav-On-Liquor and Wine, after allegedly tripping on a rug and falling down.

Wanda Ellis filed a complaint on Nov. 6 in Madison County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging they failed to keep the store safe for the public.

The plaintiff alleges that on May 10, 2016, she was at the gas station and liquor store in Collinsville when she tripped on a rug that was loose, and fell. 

She allegedly injured her left knee and left foot. She allegedly experienced pain and suffering, as well as incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff holds Kabir Inc., Phillips 66 and Sav-On-Liquor and Wine responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to inspect their premises, failed to fix the rug and failed to warn the public about it.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for more than $50,000, plus costs.

 She is represented by Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Webster, Williamson, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
