CHARLESTON - A Putnam County couple blames Heiner's Bakery and Wal-Mart for serious injuries the wife sustained at Wal-Mart's Nitro location.
June and James Carpenter of Poca filed their complaint March 21 in Kanawha Circuit Court. They seek more than $75,000 in damages.
The Carpenters were in the Wal-Mart Super Center in Nitro on March 23, 2005. During their visit, June Carpenter was hit in the back with a bread cart while she shopped in an aisle, the complaint states.
As a result of that incident, she was severely injured and incurred medical bills of more than $5,663, according to the lawsuit.
The Carpenters seek compensation for their damages, including current and future expenses. The suit says the Carpenters, through counsel G. Wayne Van Bibber, seek an amount in excess of $75,000.
The case has been assigned to Judge Louis Bloom.
