Two lawsuits filed after injuries at local businesses

Two local residents are suing national stores after allegedly being injured while shopping.
Barbara Rayl, grandmother of Joseph R. Leleux, a minor, is suing on his behalf after the then-11-year-old stepped on a "rusty nail" in the North Vernon Walmart's parking lot on June 2, 2012.
The suit by the Jackson County residents claims the nail went through his shoe and into his right foot, causing severe injuries.
The second suit involves Ruth Reitman, who with her husband Joseph has filed a suit against Piotrowski BK#12840, LLC for injuries she received at the local Burger King.
Mrs. Reitman was leaving the fast food restaurant on Aug. 17, 2011 when the door she attempted to open did not operate properly or became stuck resulting in her falling.
Both suits argue that the respective businesses had the duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition. Both are asking for damages as well as reimbursement for medical expenses, lost and/or future wages, etc.
Both are also asking for jury trials.
