A customer is suing Dierbergs Markets for injuries she allegedly suffered when she fell on a floor mat while shopping at the grocery store.

According to a lawsuit filed March 17 in Madison County Circuit Court, Crystal Beckum is suing Dierbergs Edwardsville LLC, doing business as Dierbergs Markets, after she tripped and fell on April 23 at the Dierbergs Market at 6671 Edwardsville Crossing Drive in Edwardsville.

According to the lawsuit, the store failed to warn customers about the mat, which didn't have a beveled edge, was worn and not fit for commercial use.

Beckum is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs.

Beckum is represented by John C. Webster of Williamson, Webster, Falb and Glisson of Alton.
