CHARLESTON -- A Kanawha County man is suing Wal-mart Stores for injuries sustained on its premises.
Wal-mart Stores is doing business as Sam's Club.
Jay Myers, the manager of the Sam's Club location, was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On March 6, 2010, Pat Webb was shopping at Sam's Club and was proceeding to the parking lot when his foot went into a hole that was to the left of the cart corral and was injured, according to a complaint filed March 5 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Webb claims the defendants knew or should have known of the condition of the parking lot at the site of his fall, which created an unreasonable risk of harm to invitees.
The defendants violated their duty to use reasonable care to protect Webb from hazardous conditions on their premises by failing to establish and carry out regular and frequent inspections and eliminate such conditions, according to the suit.
Webb is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by Kimberly E. Williams and Mark A. Hunt.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey.
