Pop's Saloon in Sauget is being sued by a patron who claims severe injuries after falling on the dance floor.

Lori Hart, represented by Stuart Cofman of Cofman & Townsley in St. Louis, claims a Pops' employee began mopping the dance floor directly behind her causing her to slip and sustain severe injuries on Dec. 19, 2003.

Hart is seeking in excess of $50,000 for injuries to her left knee, right ankle, trunk, spinal column, vertebrae, intervertebral discs and all the limbs of her body and all of the muscles, bones, cartilages, ligaments, tendons, tissues, nerves, blood vessels, membranes.

"...all the parts and structures thereof were seriously bruised, contused, lacerated, cut, torn, swollen, aggravated, ruptured, mashed, wrenched, narrowed, compressed, subluxed, abraded, dislocated, strained, sprained and rendered stiff, sore and painful," the complaint states.

Hart claims her body has been impaired and diminished and that her ability to work has suffered the same.

According to the suit filed July 31 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, Hart has incurred approximately $32,323.64 in medical expenses.
