A Wisconsin woman has refiled her lawsuit against convenience store company QuikTrip. Lois Nelson first sued four years ago when she tripped over a gas line and broke her leg at a QuikTrip in East Alton. She had pressed a button asking for help at a gas pump, but when none came, she headed into the store to get assistance. That's when she fell. The deaf woman claims negligence on the part of QuikTrip. The case was dismissed in 2010, but now she has refiled the personal injury case. Nelson claims it was dismissed against her wishes, so she's back with a new attorney. She wants damages in excess of $50,000 and other relief.
