A Campbell County man fell in a local Wal-Mart store in 2005 and injured his knee. He filed a premises liability lawsuit against the company in court last week. His lawyer argues that he reinjured a knee that has been operated on previously.
Dick Baker was shopping at the store Feb. 20, 2005, when the accident happened. He walked around the end of an aisle, stepped into a pool of water caused by a leaking roof and fell, according to court documents. The spot was not marked off with warning signs.
The fall caused the man nerve damage and chronic pain. The lawsuit is asking for an unnamed amount of damages. Wal-Mart has not commented on the case.
