CHARLESTON -- A woman is suing after developing respiratory problems from a toxic adhesive in flooring.


Muriel A. and Jackie Thomas filed a lawsuit Jan. 17 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Interiors Plus LLC, Centaur Floor Systems LLC, Ecore International Inc. and Russell Morrison, doing business as Alpha Professional Fitness.

According to the complaint, in February 2012, a rubberflex flooring system was manufactured, supplied, sold and installed by the defendants at the Jackson County Commission 911 Center where Muriel Thomas was employed as a call dispatcher. The plaintiffs say an adhesive was used in the flooring that includes isocyanates which are known to cause respiratory problems. According to the lawsuit, Muriel Thomas was diagnosed with reactive airway disease as a result of overexposure to the inhalation of the isocyanates.

Muriel A. and Jackie Thomas are being represented in the case by attorneys Guy R. Bucci, Mark A. Bailey and Linda Garrett of Bucci, Bailey & Javins LC.
