An Illinois customer is suing Wal-Mart, alleging negligence after she was injured while entering the retail store in O'Fallon.

Martina Conley filed a lawsuit Nov. 16 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. 

According to the complaint, on June 15, Conley was entering the Wal-Mart at 1530 W. U.S. Highway 50 in O'Fallon when she was struck by the automatic doors. 

As a result, the suit says, the plaintiff was severely injured on her head, body and limbs, both internally and externally, has had and will continue to have medical care expenses, has experienced lost wages, and expects her future earning capacity to be affected.

Conley seeks at least $50,000 plus court costs and attorney fees. She also requests an order of discovery against Wal-Mart for a copy of the recording of the incident.

She is represented by attorneys Thomas C. Rich, Kristina Cooksey and Michelle M. Rich of Fairview Heights.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 15-L-658.
