A Kanawha County woman is suing a pharmacy for not maintaining the floor in a safe condition that caused her to slip and fall.
On November 14th, Ann Hines filed her lawsuit against Fruth Pharmacy in Kanawha Circuit Court. Hines says Fruth had a duty to not expose its visitors to injury while they are exercising ordinary care with their own safety. The alleged incident happened on November 14th, 2004. Hines says, she “slipped and fell on the floor that were negligently and improperly maintained.”
“As a result of the negligent maintenance and failure to warn Plaintiff of the unsafe condition, Plaintiff sustained severe damages to her person.” The complaint does not specify the condition of the floor or extent of Hines’ injuries, though Hines is seeking compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of earning capacity and medical expenses.
