A woman has filed a personal injury suit against a Wal-Mart store, alleging that she was injured while helping an employee collect shopping carts.
According to the suit Lucille Kiser filed on August 5 against Wal-Mart Stores East in West Virginia’s Kanawha Circuit Court, the store is liable for the pain she has suffered over the past eight months after a collection of shopping carts struck her.
Court records say that on November 1, Kiser was a customer at the store when she noticed an employee collecting carts in the parking lot prior to leaving. She asked the employee if he would like to take hers as well and held it in a manner to prevent it from rolling away.
Rather than retrieving the cart Kiser was holding and bring it back to the others he’d collected, she says he continued pushing the ones he’d collected into the one she was holding. She claims after all the carts connected, she was struck in the leg and hip, causing “significant pain.”
Kiser claims that since the day of the incident, she “from time-to-time still has pain in her hip and leg.”
Kiser seeks unspecified damages, plus costs.
