A woman is suing a major retailer over injuries she suffered in a trip-and-fall accident.

A Wal-Mart customer is suing the Quincy store after she allegedly slipped and fell on a puddle of liquid.

Deborah Waddill filed a complaint on July 24 in Madison County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores.

Waddill was a customer at the Wal-Mart in Quincy on Aug. 6, 2014, when she claims she slipped on a wet floor and fell. According to the lawsuit, she suffered injuries, pain, loss of a normal life and medical expenses.

The defendant is cited for breach of duty for allegedly allowing liquids to leak or stand on the floor, correct a dangerous condition, and warn the plaintiff of the condition.

The plaintiff seeks damages of more than $50,000, plus costs.

The plaintiff is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone and Lauber in Clayton and Mindy S. Bish of Bish Law in Newhall, Calif.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-933.
