Woman Files Lawsuit for Slip and Fall against Bar

A woman filed a lawsuit against a cocktail lounge in Madison County, Illinois, for falling on its premises

The lawsuit, filed by Mamie Ammonette, accused C.T.W.'s Lounge Inc. of being negligent in maintaining their premises safely and failing to keep the parking lot clear of ice.

Ammonette aleges she suffered injuries to her wrist, arm and extremities after slipping on an icy sidewalk in front of the building. In addition to past and future suffering, she alleges that she has accumulated medical bills and is unable to earn the amount of income she could earn if she were not injured.

Ammonette seeks damages in excess of $50,000 in the suit, plus attorneys' fees and costs.
