Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation
A man who allegedly slipped and fell in a cracked parking lot has recently brought suit against the parking lot's owner, American Steel Foundries. According to court documents, the incident allegedly occurred on June 22, 2012 when the male plaintiff was walking from Steel Foundries' parking lot towards the manufacturing plant located at 1700 Walnut St. in Granite City, Illinois. The male plaintiff slipped and fell on an uneven portion of the poorly maintained parking lot. The fall and resulting injury were caused by the deteriorated, cracked and unstable parking lot surface, according to the plaintiff. Furthermore, the plaintiff asserts that the defendant is liable because it knew or should have known about the parking lot's condition and its potential to cause injury, yet the company failed to use ordinary care to warn or remedy the hazard. Suit was filed on June 17, 2014 in Madison County Circuit Court against ASF-Keystone, Inc., doing business as American Steel Foundries. The plaintiff is seeking more than $50,000 in damages, plus costs.
