A man is suing Walmart for injuries he claims he sustained after being struck by a car in the parking lot.

Shaher Alwaisi filed a lawsuit Oct. 9 in Cook County Circuit Court against Walmart, citing negligence.

According to the complaint, Alwaisi was a customer at a Walmart store at 200 S. Bolingbrook Drive in Bolingbrook on April 22, 2008, when he was struck by a car while walking in the parking lot.
