Alton Shop N Save

A woman who slipped on transmission fluid in the parking lot of an Alton Shop N Save is suing the store in Madison County Circuit Court for more than $50,000.

Alleging extensive internal and external injuries, Betty Jane Davies claims she was walking to her car when the incident took place on June 14, 2003.

According to the complaint filed May 31, Davies alleges Shop N Save was negligent by allowing the fluid to remain on the parking lot, failing to clean the fluid, and failing to post signs to warn patrons of the dangerous conditions.

Davies claims she was made sick, sore, lame, disordered, disabled and disfigured, and suffered a loss of earning capacity, has spent large sums of money on medical care and lost wages.

Davies is represented by Lon Weaver of East Alton. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Nicholas Byron.
