EDWARDSVILLE — A shopper claims she was injured when a Wal-Mart employee collided with her at the Granite City store. 

Sandy Sterling filed a complaint on Nov. 13, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., alleging it failed to maintain its store premises in a reasonably safe condition.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 10, 2016, she was a lawful invitee at defendant's Wal-Mart Supercenter in Granite City when an employee struck her with a pallet jack and boxes of merchandise. 

As a result, the plaintiff claims she sustained severe and permanent injuries to numerous parts of her body, resulting in great pain and anguish, medical expenses and lost wages. 

Sterling alleges Wal-Mart negligently caused the pallet jack loaded with merchandise to collide with her and failed to provide warning of the existence of a dangerous condition on the premises.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in excess of $50,000, plus costs incurred for this action. 

She is represented by Steven Giacoletto of Giacoletto Law Firm in Collinsville.
