WAYNE – A Wayne man is suing Wal-Mart after he claims he was injured when he fell on its property.
On Jan. 30, 2014, Donald Skaggs walked into the restroom at the Wal-Mart in Wayne, when he slipped on the wet floor and fell down, according to a complaint filed Feb. 1 in Wayne Circuit Court.
Skaggs claims when he fell, it caused him to strike his body on the concrete floor and become injured.
Wal-Mart owed Skaggs and others who would be entering and exiting its property a duty to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition and/or to warn the plaintiff and others of the unsafe condition, according to the suit.
Skaggs claims the defendant failed to warn him and others of the unsafe condition by placing a “Wet Floor” sign or some other form of warning in the area.
As a direct and proximate result of the defendant’s negligence, recklessness, carelessness and breach of duties, Skaggs suffered grievous permanent injuries of a personal and pecuniary nature, according to the suit.
Skaggs is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by Michael L. Myers of Myers & Perfater.
The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Darrell Pratt.
