Man Sues Wal-Mart and One Other in Auto Accident Lawsuit

A man is suing Wal-Mart and its employee, Lincoln T. Cearlock, over injuries he suffered when the employee allegedly hit him with his vehicle while stopped on the side of the road.

David L. Kamadulski claims he was stopped in his Ford pickup truck on the right shoulder of a freeway off ramp when Cearlock, who was driving a Ford van owned by Wal-Mart, struck him.

In the lawsuit, Kamadulski claims that, because of the collision, he was hindered and prevented from attending to his usual affairs and lost wages. He also claims that he suffered anguish and incurred substantial medical costs.

The lawsuit also states that Cearlock failed to use his horn, was driving too fast, failed to keep his vehicle under control, failed to keep a proper lookout for other vehicles, and failed to reduce his speed to avoid a collision.

Because Cearlock was an employee of Wal-Mart at the time of the collision, the store is also liable for the accident and for damages.

Kamadulski is seeking $100,000, plus costs.
