Alleging that she should have been warned not to stand in front of a swinging door, Emma Clayton has filed suit against Wal-Mart Stores and Coca-Cola Enterprises.

The suit was filed July 29 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 8, 2009, Clayton was shopping at the Groves Wal-Mart when a Coco-Cola employee pushed a cart through a set of swinging doors, which struck Clayton and knocked her to the ground.

In her suit, Clayton alleges that she injured her shoulder in the incident and that both defendants failed to warn her of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Jill S. Chatelain of McPherson, Hughes, Bradley, Wimberley, Steele and Chatelain in Port Arthur will be representing her.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. B190-603
