A woman who slipped and fell in a puddle of water that collected on the premises of SuperValu in Highland filed a personal injury suit in Madison County Circuit Court May 21, alleging SuperValu failed to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition.

Nancy Ramirez claims she was at SuperValu on May 28, 2006, when she slipped in a puddle of water that accumulated in an aisle inside the store.

She claims SuperValu negligently permitted a dangerous condition to exist, failed to properly remove the water, failed to make reasonable inspections, failed to warn others of the water and failed to properly operate, maintain and manage the store.

Ramirez claims she sustained internal and external injuries to her right knee and leg which caused and continues to cause pain and suffering, medical expenses, disability and disfigurement, lost wages and an increased risk of future injury.

Represented by D. Jeffrey Ezra and Shaun Lieser of Collinsville, Ramirez is seeking damages in excess of $100,000, plus costs of the suit.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Daniel Stack.
