Mascoutah resident Kimberly Biekert is seeking in excess of $100,000 from Wal-Mart for injuries sustained when she slipped on a pool of water at the O'Fallon store on July 3, 2004.

Biekert is represented by Michael N. Cook of Cook, Ysursa, Bartholomew, Brauer & Shevlin of Belleville.

Among other things, she claims the store failed to maintain its premises in a reasonably clean condition by allowing water to accumulate on the floor in an area where it knew or should have known that customers would be walking, and for failing to periodically inspect for the accumulation of foreign substances.

Biekert claims back injuries, pain and mental anguish, medical costs and loss of past and future income.

The suit was filed June 30 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
