A Cook County woman is suing over claims she sustained injuries after tripping over a photo copier left in the middle of a suburban Sam's Club aisle.

Beverly Boyd filed a lawsuit May 2 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., doing business as Sam's Club, citing negligence.

Boyd claims she was at the Sam's Club at 2601 S. Cicero Ave. in Cicero on Nov. 10, 2012, when she tripped and fell over a photo copier that was in the middle of an aisle. The suit alleges the defendant failed to keep its aisles clear of hazardous conditions, resulting in Boyd's injuring her limbs, back, spine and head.

Boyd is seeking damages in excess of $30,000 and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Chicago attorney Edward J. Campbell of Sachs, Earnest & Associates Ltd.
