Rebecca Shinkle-Orlandini filed a personal injury suit against the Glen Carbon Wal-Mart store and its employee Russell Schubert for injuries received when a heavy shopping cart was pushed into her.

In a suit filed in Madison County Circuit Court Nov. 15, Shinkle-Orlandini claims that Schubert failed to use caution when maneuvering the cart in a shopping aisle on July 25. She is seeking at least $50,000 in damages.

Claiming she was pinned between the cart and a counter, Shinkle-Orlandini is seeking compensation for back, spine, neck and shoulder injuries as well as for mental anguish, disability and disfigurement.

Shinkle-Orlandini is represented by Michael Glisson of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson of Alton.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Don Weber.
