A personal injury suit has been filed against a Wal-Mart store in Cahokia, Illinois and the Home City Ice Co. after she allegedly slipped and fell on water which had accumulated on the floor near an ice machine.

According to a suit filed in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Illinois on May 22, Carolyn Case and her husband John Case, Sr. allege negligence on the part of the store and ice company for placing an ice machine in an inappropriate location which created a dangerous condition.

Case alleges that the floor was permitted and allowed to become wet by the defendants.

The incident took place on August 12, 2006 and allegedly resulted in serious and permanent personal injuries which Carolyn Case did not specify.

According to John Case, he has lost the society, companionship, affection, and consortium of his wife.

The Cases seek damages in excess of $200,000 in addition to costs of suit.
