The parents of a young boy have filed suit against a Beaumont, Texas Sutherland’s, claiming the company is responsible for the personal injuries their son suffered when he fell out of a shopping cart.
On November 12, Connie and Edward Stunkard filed suit in Texas’ Jefferson County District Court.
Court papers say that on February 19, 2009, the minor child was in a shopping cart at the lumber store when he “fell from the cart and sustained injuries.”
The suit does not specify how the child fell and if his parents were supervising him at the time. The suit also does not list any negligent acts on the part of Sutherland’s.
The Stunkards seek damages in excess of $75,000.
