A woman who stumbled in the parking lot of St. Clair Square filed suit against the Fairview Heights shopping mall in Madison County Circuit Court Nov. 9, seeking damages in excess of $50,000.

Julie Hedger claims that on Oct. 10, St. Clair Square negligently permitted its premises to remain dangerous, despite knowing that work crews had dug up the parking lot.

Hedger claims she sustained severe personal injuries that have hindered her from attending to her usual duties and affairs after walking through the parking lot. She also suffered great pain and mental anguish, and became liable for medical expenses relating to her injuries, the complaint states.

Hedger is represented by James Gorman of Lucco, Brown, Threlkeld and Dawson in Edwardsville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Daniel Stack.
