A man is suing the Moline Menards, claiming he was struck in the head by a sign while leaving the store.

Christopher Moss, age and address unknown, filed the arbitration suit Wednesday in Rock Island County Circuit Court requesting less than $50,000 in damages. His suit claims the store should have warned customers about the "dangerous condition."

Mr. Moss sustained "personal injuries" from the sign, according to the suit, which did not indicate the type of sign.The complaint further claims the former store, at 4100 10th St. Dr., Moline, should have ensured the sign was installed correctly or repaired to prevent it from falling.

A manager at the store on Thursday declined comment.
