A woman has filed suit against Big Lots, alleging a reclining chair she bought from the store twice fell apart while people were sitting in it.
Helen M. claims she bought a Berry Check reclining chair from the Fairview Heights Big Lots in early January 2009.
In the middle of February 2009, Helen’s brother was sitting in the chair when it collapsed to the floor, according to the complaint filed July 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
At the end of March 2009, Big Lots replaced Helen’s chair with a new Berry Check reclining chair, the suit states.
In the first week of July 2009, Helen sat in the chair when it again fell apart, the complaint says.
“Plaintiff pulled the reclining arm of reclining chair, and when doing so, the entire back of the reclining chair collapsed, throwing Plaintiff to the ground and injuring Plaintiff’s body in various manner and various places,” the suit states.
