While on her way to the concession stand at a little league park, local resident Alice Day tripped.
On June 13 Day filed suit against West End Little League in Jefferson County Court, alleging the defendant should have barricaded the elevated path that caused her to trip.
According to the lawsuit, on June 29, 2011, Day was viewing a ball game at West End Little League's premises. While making her way to the concession stand, she tripped over a "poorly marked elevated walking area."
Day claims West End Little League negligently failed to provide warning signs and barriers and maintain its premises.
She allegedly fractured her right humerus in the fall and is suing for her past and future medical expenses, mental anguish and impairment, plus all court costs.
Beaumont attorney Trenton Bond represents her.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. B192-562
