CHARLESTON -- A man is suing Wal-mart after he claims he was injured when he fell in the Cross Lanes store.

Wal-mart Stores East, LP; Wal-mart Associates, Inc.; Wal-mart Real Estate Business Trust; Wal-mart Realty Company; Wal-mart Stores East, Inc.; Wal-mart Stores, Inc.; Wal-mart Transportation, LLC; Wal-mart TRS, LLC; and Wal-mart.com USA, LLC were named as defendants in the suit.

On Aug. 7, 2009, Philip Angeron was a customer of the defendants' store when he slipped and fell due to a liquid substance on the floor, according to a complaint filed Aug. 5 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Angeron claims the defendants knew or should have known that the substance was on the floor, but did nothing to remedy the hazard.

The defendants breached their duty by failing to provide a safe place to walk, according to the suit.

Angeron is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Christopher T. Pritt.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey.

Kanawha Circuit Court case number: 11-C-1305
